I must've gotten just a little too excited about all the signs of spring in my garden. Winter came back to remind me that there are still 10 days until spring is officially here. It snowed several times during the weekend. Yesterday it really started coming down. I wondered how all my poor plants were doing. It's supposed to be down in the 20's at night for the next few nights.

As of this morning the pond has a layer of ice on it, and snow still covers the grass, trees and plants.
