Although Pansies are winter tolerant, they have been tested this week with temperatures around 20 degrees. The good news is that a warming trend is back for the weekend and a return to more normal temperatures.

The first flowers of the season always have the risk of damage from the cold. These Daffodils in Falls Park are seeing the results of this ‘Blizzard’ last week. But as snowfall goes, it was amazingly mild, even for this area. Just a dusting of snow on the ground over a period of an hour or so, then the sun came out and it was all gone an hour later! It’s even a fine storm to hike in Falls Park.
