Iced

Spring on ice is a lovely performance

With frozen splashes of purple,

Iced over buds of yellow

And the green candles of evergreens

Decorated with nature’s lights of ice.

(As you can see, we’ve have had some cold weather this week.)

    A very common spring time occurrence here, too, Fiona. The flowers that grow in spring in Colorado ahve to be hardy as they often have snow upon them

    Fantastic! We had some ice on our spring blooms and it didn’t kill them, but the frigid temperatures that followed, did. I learned recently that growers actually spray plants when freeze threatens, so it will cover them with ice and keep them at 30 degrees and not 18, which is what it got here!
