Spring Beauties

Dear George,
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.

  1. Beautiful pictures! I think Menominee had more "winter" than you did, and we're not out of the woods yet. I can't forget that we had a Siberia-like snowstorm last year on MAY 14.
