The daffodils bloomed and now its freezing temps again. I wonder how they survive? Some of mine did not. The blooms fell off after the first night of below freezing for most of the night. It was so warm for most of January that these below frreezing nights and the days in the low 40s are a shock to every living thing. Today we had overcast skies and snow flurries thorughout the day. The flakes were blown in by the wind rather forcefully rather than drifting lazily to the ground. I did get to ride my Appaloosa mare Sally for a couple of hours, finishing up just as a new batch of flurries pelted the barn. I'm adding new horse manure to the compost pile every day but its been cold enough that even the worms are inactive.
