Salvage Yard

Just a couple days ago the kids wanted to run around the yard with their shirts off and tonight we have snow. I tried to cover the most delicate plants with a few pots, it's too windy for bags to work. But there is a sense of fatalism to a "native" landscape - if they can't survive a little April cold snap.
The tulips on the sunny south side were fine but the north-siders were already drooping. So they got cut and brought into the kitchen. Once inside though they really perked up and even bloomed. Pretty nice arrangement for thrown together.
