Blooming in my garden

Hello every body,
I just had to put in words my sadness when I saw the Tulips and Daffodils
They were coming up and I was glad to see them although I worried about the
change in temperature. I live in Pennsylvania where it has been very cold
and snowy
of late. The plants decided to stick their little heads out and of course
we are at
minus temperatures now. The flowers I am sad for are not in my yard but I
used to look
at them as I walked my neighbors dog. Suddenly Winter became cold and dingy
the outside so I fled to my nice warm house where my Oxalis plants greeted
me with open
Stay warm all,
