On the anniversary of ‘77
Some of you may be familiar with the Blizzard of ’77; it buried Buffalo and most of Western New York under drifts 30’ and better of snow. The interesting fact about this storm is that only about a foot of snow actually fell. The blowing and drifting are what wreaked all the havoc. This event is what has largely branded Buffalo as a snow capitol, about thirty-three years ago.
Whatever. The way I celebrate such anniversaries is to visit our Botanical Gardens and grow flowers indoors. Here are a few hyacinths: some Prince of Love (pink) and some Crystal Palace (blue).
I have other flowers growing indoors now, but these are my favorites. I keep them in my office at work, and wherever I can at home.
