The magnolias are blooming and the air is smelling sweet.
These beautiful pansies bloom all winter here in Tennessee. They usually survive through what little snow we get and show their heads again after the melt. This year may test their hardy-ness as a record breaking cold spell is on the way today. We’ll soon see if they make it. Gardeners, all over the area, are out covering them up. I hope they make it. They are the only bit of color in an otherwise brown winter landscape.
