Small Miracles: Tenacious Spring

Gigantic sigh of relief.

We had a little cold spell this past weekend in these parts, and it was quite the nail-biter at our little house.

Late this past fall, we spent two days out of our lives planting Spring bulbs: tulips, crocus, grape hyacinths and narcissi. The early warmth caused everything to sprout sooner than predicted, and the weekend weather threatened to thwart our payoff.

Happy to report that, with a little love and a nice warm coverup, our tulips survived the trial.

Ladies and gentlemen, the money shot.

Ah, Spring. I love you.
