Last night, the low here in southeastern Michigan plunged into the mid-20’s. Knowing temps like that would kill off all my remaining flowers, I went out into the yard in the afternoon to save whatever was still blooming. There was enough for a small but colorful arrangement. I’ve had a vase full of fresh flowers from the garden in my house since the daffodils and grape hyacinths popped out of the ground in the spring. I sure am going to miss being able to pick pretty flowers as we go through our long Michigan winter! But I’ll look forward to the first flowers of spring, hepatica and bloodroot, that emerge in my woodland garden in April. Spring is my favorite season of the year and it can never come soon enough for me!!!
