Technically, these aren’t true Bloom Day photos, because I took them on Saturday. Saturday morning, all of Wilmington, NC woke to a snowfall that comes only once a decade in our little southern coastal metropolis. And, as the ONE bloom that I planned to highlight in my bloom day photographs, come Monday, was hanging on, in the snow and ice, I went ahead and snapped away. That flower’s still on the plant today, but it is much less interesting, hanging there in the mud, now that the snow is gone.
The snow was perfect for making snowmen. The dusting we got last year didn’t even compare. So, those who were brave enough to drive around on Saturday morning and afternoon, saw a snowman in every single yard, in front of every single business, and made with every single skill level and accessory. The kids who made snowmen on Saturday might be married with their own children by the time we get another snow like this.
