The flowers that were opened to the sun are huddling together, preserving warmth. A polar vortex has swept in - a brief return to wintry temperatures. Back to hats and gloves and scarves as a cold wind makes the air feel even colder.
I couldn't help but think this tree was smiling at me - glad to have someone to share the enjoyment of his outdoors life. Soon the daytime highs will once again be above freezing. The flowers will soon open again and be joined but the succession of spring blooms.
