Three days ago the yard was leafing out in anticipation of spring.
That was before winter tightened its icy grip.
I don’t expect the honeysuckle will sustain any permanent damage.
The hydrangea should also survive.
Because winter can’t hold on forever. The ice and snow will melt.
Soon I’ll be able to pry open the frozen gate and let spring edge a few steps further into the yard.
I know what you mean about winter’s icy grip! I’m in Massachusetts, and it’s been nothing but piles of snow for weeks.
I’m always grumpy about winter, this time of year, but this winter has been particularly cruel. I hope everything melts soon! (Except, of course, in places where it’s not supposed to melt…)
Superb images. The one of the frozen bolt is especially evocative.
The bolt is my favorite of this group! 🙂
