These crocuses were completely covered by five inches of snow this morning on this, the first day of spring. By this afternoon, the temperature had risen and the March sun had begun to quickly melt the snow.
These determined crocuses were none the worse for wear, and I always like seeing their colorful blossoms against the snow. I only wish there had been a bit more sun to brighten the scene.
With this storm we ended up with just over thirty inches of snow for the season as compared to the over 110 inches we had last year.
I thought you might like to see the cute little gift that was made for each of us by the organizers of the recent guild quilt retreat that I attended.
Stilettos are so handy for moving small pieces of fabric under the sewing machine needle.
