Not the Blizzard of 1888, but they say the Northeast got a lot of snow. We got three or four more inches last night and into the morning. More than in January or February, and enough to catch the back yard croci in early blossom.
They’re hardy flowers. I’m sure they’ll survive the day or two of snow cover.
The snow’s already mostly melted off the streets and driveways and sidewalks, so it hardly counts as a nuisance. Still, it’s hard to believe the view from the back door will look like this in three months.
Lilacia Park, May 9, 2015
The Lombard park sports a wealth of lilacs, of course, such as this Hyacinthiflora lilac.
But also tulips, such as “Antoinnette.”
And “Mona Lisa.”
And “Burgundy Lace,” a fringed tulip.
Also, good old crabapple trees.
This character showed up to entertain. I think. Or maybe he just likes to dress up. Thing 1 and Thing 2 weren’t around.
I took some of the pictures and Ann took others.
