Lulled into a false sense of security,I was sure that it was just a matter of time before we'd see the weather get warmer and that the Galanthus , Crocus and Eranthis that were already in bloom, would be joined by the usual procession of Spring flowers.
We are, after all, in the banana-belt of Southern Ontario and are used to a relatively early Spring. However we were surprised on Wednesday by a late and quite fierce storm that dumped 14cm of snow and left us in frigid sub-zero temperatures.
It's continued to be cold, but very sunny and clear and as a result, a great deal of the snow has melted.
Today I saw that a number of the Spring bulbs have re-appeared through the surface of the snow and I hope will quickly re-assert themselves into the garden landscape as the weather( surely) improves.
Eranthis, Crocus and Galanthus.
