We’ve had an unusually mild winter. No big snowstorms — actually, hardly any snow at all -- and no ice on the sidewalks. But we’re still patiently waiting for spring. It went up into the 60’s for a week, the magnoliias opened up, and then the frost came back and did them in. In place of the great outdoors I went to the annual spring show at the Krohn Conservatory. It’s called “Blooms on the Bayou” and has a New Orleans theme, featuring camellias, tulips, and hyacinths. Here are some flower photos to help put one in a spring mood.
