The one word forecast for today’s weather on the front page was: miserable. And by late afternoon that would have been an accurate description. By the time nightfall came around, I would have described it as a dark and stormy night. Before that, though, it was perfect weather for planting tulips. I am thankful for the cool, cloudy and breezy weather we had while cutting the dahlias and planting the bulbs. And I am tremendously grateful for our warm and cozy house protecting us from the howling wind outside in the midst of night.
