Amaryllis Mini Fanfare blooming in the snow
Friday December 4th – it snowed…. in Houston. What a rare event indeed.
As I watched from my office window yesterday, it brought back memories of snowfalls from my youth. Those magical nights looking up and watching snowflakes fall in front of the street lights. Quiet and still.
With the snow came sadness as I thought about all of my favorite green treasures outdoors in the freezing weather. The low last night was 25 degrees. As the snow melts and the sun comes out today, I can see that many of my plants will not survive the freeze damage. I tried to save some of my orchids Friday morning by putting them in the garage, but there were so many that I just didn’t have time to save before going to work.
I managed to collect a few photos of this rare event to share. This is my favorite rose now drooped in melting snow.
