Friday Follow-Up


According to Snoopy, "We know that Spring is neat when it begins to get windy," as evidenced in the Peanuts Comic Strip posted atop of this blog entry. As of this posting, the official onset of spring is still twelve days away, but the tulips in my rooftop garden apparently having gotten the memo.

Eleven days ago (Tuesday February 27th), here on Blogger I published an entry where I discussed that everything was coming up tulips in my place. Since that time, we have had two Nor'Easters, (one on March 2nd and the other on March 7th) in NYC.

The consequences of these storms caused power outages and a number of accidents throughout the metropolitan area but the storms' affects on my garden seem to have been minimal. Although I'm not sure how my newly awakened tulips felt about having having mounds wet slushy snow dumped on them after they had just woken up from being put to sleep this past November.

The following are photo-ops of how my tulips looked when they first woke up from their winter nap, and then how they looked during our recent storms.

And also during March 7th's Nor'Easter:



The weather related conditions featured in all of these images merely touch on what occurred in my place, I did not take additional images on wither day as the storm progressed as it was impossible to do so in a nor'Easter! Meanwhile, even more snow storms are expected in the coming days! But that the forecast does not seem to deter my tulips who either are insomniacs or have a case of pre-Spring fever; hopefully they will survive these weather conditions and flourish! Stay tuned!
