The weather is not as nice in CT as in Vancouver!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Dagny's Real Estate

In CT, we have had snowstorm after snow storm.    Last year, in January, my witch hazel chose to bloom!   Gorgeous yellow blossoms all over it, lasting for a month.   It carried us through until we got crocuses in March.

 This year, however, not a one open yet, and we're nearing the end of February.  That means we won't see our crocuses until April this year!

Dagny,

My mother used to buy a bottled solution of Witch Hazel when I was a little kid half a century ago.  She applied it to scraped knees, small cuts, etc.  I never knew about the plant.  Thanks for blogging; you never know what emotion you'll touch with a post, and you brought a smile to my face.  I'm adding you as an associate and subscribing to your blog.

Dagny - our changing weather patterns certainly have an impact on more than our immediate lives they are also affecting the longer term environment around us..

Those are some beautiful photos. The winter Olympics in Vancouver has been really fun to watch. I had no idea the scenery of the area was so beautiful.

Christopher - those photos were from CT - I was referring in my last comment to Fred Carver's gorgeous pix from flowers in Vancouver - a post of his!
