Bluebells in the snow

We had snow today. It wasn’t the end of the world, and it isn’t all that uncommon for April in Detroit. We only got a couple of inches, and it was so wet that it melted pretty quickly. But it was perfectly timed for this morning. On the way to the car to go to work, I grabbed my camera and took some photos of the unfortunate bulbs that had poke their little heads out only to get snowed upon. My Flickr has a few other photos from today, including my poor snow-covered tulips.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    Thanks … they’re bulbs, mostly (not sure what bluebells are, exactly, but the others are bulbs), so they don’t last terribly long, anyway. It would be nice if they lasted a little while longer, of course.

    We had about 10 inches in late April in 2005, but it was so wet that it didn’t accumulate here. Thirty miles north of here, though, they had a lot of accumulation. Every few years, it seems to happen.

    Now that’s a very nice picture. Poor flowers, though.

      Thanks 🙂

      Yes, the poor flowers. They seemed OK this morning (snow is gone), but they probably could use a little warming up. Unfortunately, the warming that’s coming tonight comes with thunderstorms, so they may get windblown and inundated. It’s a hard life for a bluebell this year.
