1357. Late February, and the air’s so balmy snowdrops and crocuses might be fooled into early blooming. ~Gail Mazur

It’s only approaching mid-February rather than late February hereabouts, and there are no crocuses yet nor snowdrops blooming for us, but it is balmy enough for the quinces, daffodils, and saucer magnolias to have been fooled into blooming.

oft treacherous is
winter when it proffers not
cold nor snow nor ice

But instead betrays
the garden with lies that spring
has indeed arrived

So that daffodils
and quince and magnolias
flower too early

Leaving them in great
peril from a forth coming
late wintry, hard freeze

So who’s to say that
‘tis the month of love when
deceitfulness lurks

But as for the Lord: … but I(God) will not take my love from him, not will I ever betray my faithfulness to him. I will not violate my covenant or alter why my lips have uttered. ~Psalm 89:33-34 ✝

    • Oh no!!! I’m so sorry! We got a really hard freeze way too early and I’ve lost at least a half a dozen roses and who knows what else. I’ve never seen that kind of loss before! So I join you in your sadness😢😢
