No wonder people love bulbs - they come back even after a week of snow! (Actually, probably because of the week of snow.) I didn't plant these as bulbs, but was given some plants from a friend with a really green thumb. These will turn into orange lilies.
I used to think of what's behind this fence as just a vacant lot, until the weeks around the Super Bowl, when a sponsor took over half our work parking lot for an event. Now that the field has been restored to its normal state, it's a sea of calm open space.
This is a closeup of some of the ice on our back sidewalk on Wednesday. It started as freezing rain, so is very bumpy and slick. Driving to work was fun that day. I'm very relieved that most ice has melted and temperatures are going to be much warmer in coming days.
