|Welcome to Havenwood!|
Many flowers that were doing so well, so soon... too soon... did meet a cruel end with the frost.
The star magnolia blooms were blackened after one day of blooming all around our town. The taller daffodils did not stand up as well to the snow that covered them soon after they were full out, but the shorter ones have stood the test. The pretty star of Bethlehem, that I recently posted, were soon snuffed out with cold. But still, the garden and the gardener marches on...
There are still a few pretties to see today for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day in our western PA garden.

|Lenten rose, Helleborus orientalis, comes in a plethora of beautiful colors and patterns.|
We have had some beautiful spring weather! And also some more snow. That is spring here in Pennsylvania, with its immoderate temperature swings and hour by hour changes. But then much of the interior US is like that. Only the coastal areas benefit from the moderating effect of the ocean.
And yet, we can still have beautiful flowers that hold up to these extremes and come out on the mild days. Here are a few beauties I can recommend!
