If you look closely, you'll see a few flakes on the bloom in the photo. It's not that unusual for it to snow at this time of year around here, actually. Today - March 21 - is the same date that I buried my mother, nineteen years ago, and I remember very distinctly that it snowed on that day, too.
Spring Fever By Alison Boylston Piazza
Crocuses are blooming,
Spring is in the air,
So why am I still wearing
My winter underwear?
In mittens, scarf and jacket,
Woolen cap and socks,
What a way to celebrateThe vernal equinox!
