Discovered this morning outside our back door. These are tulips.
I should have taken a photograph of it while out in the garden, but I didn't think of it at the time, so you'll just have to trust me that I did indeed pick this from the garden.
Not too hard to believe, since this is Canada -- the land of extremely variable weather. Some years it can be mild enough to still have edible kale in the garden and hang clothes on the line. Other years we can be in a deep freeze. And still other years on day two or three (sometimes more) of what we affectionately (at least for the first two or three times anyways) call snow days. Who knows, maybe next week we'll be up to our necks in snow, or even less fun, wrapping up against some major sub zero Celsius temperatures. Ahhh, the joys of a Canadian winter. It may be wonderfully mild today, but tomorrow, well, your guess is as good as mine!
Please excuse the use of British swearing in the last line. We are after all still a part of the British commonwealth. ;o) Image: Deviantart
How has your winter been so far?
