Still hoping for spring

After a quick but heavy hit of snow, it’s looking more like spring again, but we’re wondering if it will last this time. There were still patches of snow when I went to town this afternoon, though most of it’s gone. There are buds …

The amaryllis seems to have stopped at about 24″ and turned out to have 4 buds πŸ™‚ Love the red!

Hope everyone has a happy holiday – we’ve got company coming, so I’ve been cooking and getting ready.
