These flower buds are encased in ice. They grow into pretty pink and white flowers. I don't think they will this year.
And this is what my pine trees look like right now. All the needles are covered with a coating of ice.
And THIS, this is my daffodils!!! They grow along the fence line of the east pasture. As you can see, they already had their pretty yellow flowers on them just getting ready to open. Each flower is encased with ice! When this happened a few years ago on March 17th, they didn't bloom at all because the blooms were killed off by the snow. One of the things that I look forward to every year is the Spring flowers. That year when we had a snowstorm on March 17th, we had no Spring flowers at all that year :-(. It is just soooooo wrong to have a snowstorm on the first day of Spring. So, how was your first day of Spring? I hope yours was much better than ours.
