Looking out at the yard, I'm really glad I took cuttings of the flowering shrubs to enjoy indoors for a few days and covered all the tender plants. The quince is especially beautiful.

This is the weather that just PISSES me off!! There's really no point in planting any bulb flowers in Denver because most years, they just all get killed. Last year all our daffodils were killed back to the ground before any of them even bloomed. This year, there were three blooms. I suspect that's it for them this year I would imagine most of the trees that were greening up will be back to bare after such a horrible freeze.

Saturday evening I ransacked the house for every blanket and bucket I could find and covered everything possible. Fingers crossed, most will come through intact, but it was terribly disappointing to see the forsythias freeze. They were just gorgeous.

So I didn't get a chance to get out over the weekend, was in Salida. Is it pretty much over now with the snow/freeze? Many of the larger trees in Littleton at least barely started to bud before the freeze, while some of the smaller trees were already flowering

Yeah the snow ended early this morning and the sun is out. The roads will be nothing but slush by this afternoon. The good news is we didn't get nearly as much snow as the NWS had forecast. The bad news is there was a hard freeze last night.

When I was walking around in a nearby tree-lined park today, I noticed all of the little flower buds had fallen to the ground after the freeze. Really too bad, some of them were only a day or two from blooming.
