A snowy welcome home
After being spoiled by Maryland's sunny weather, I got a Minnesota welcome home. Last night another inch of snow covered the landscape.
In Maryland, snowdrops and crocuses flowers dotted the lawns. Pussy willows were in bud. We also hit the US botanical gardens, where I got my fill of spring bulbs and orchids in bloom. Just enough of a taste of spring to appreciate the white landscape and get through the Minnesota winter.
