The first part of this week was cold and wet.
I think icicles hanging from the leaves of flowers are beautiful.
It does seem weird to have an ice world after the pretty spring days that preceded it.
Thursday was our first dry day this week.
There was damage to some of the flowers.
Walking around my neighborhood I saw there were also plenty of surviving flowers.
I'm guessing the flower below didn't bloom until after the cold weather had retreated.
Some of the trees lost their flowers but others are still thriving.
I think flowers that drop on the ground but keep some color are almost as beautiful as when they are on the bushes.
The rest of the shots were taken during a walk in my neighborhood this Friday.
Looking at the forecast the temperatures will continue going up and down
Saturday is supposed to be a beautiful spring day but Sunday turns cold and wet again.
The day time temperatures in the forecast are supposed to be above freezing but the temperatures are dropping at night to well below freezing beginning on Sunday.
Most of the early spring flowers do fairly well as long as it warms up during the day as long as the night temperatures aren't too extreme.
In spite of the damage done to some of the flowers due to the swinging weather, there are plenty that were frozen buds but once it warmed up the buds opened in all their splendor.
