Wildflowers are tough

I can't believe how cold it seems today. Yesterday, too. Monday it was nearly eighty and now it has gone below freezing at night. The daffodils were conked this morning. Some of them raised their heads as the day warmed marginally. But the wildflowers--celandine poppy and bluebells, for example--are merrily blooming as they are blown sideways by high winds. As for me, I just want to wrap myself up in fleece and wait for a permanent call to Spring. I don't mind cold weather a bit--in its place. It never seems right in April--although we get it every year; you'd think I'd be used to it by now. Pity the poor Easter bunny. No wonder he has a fur coat.
