The snow predictions were not overblown – we received around nine inches at our house!!
While I had some confidence the daffodils would be ok, the depth of the snow concerned me so I shoveled (yes, shoveled) the snow off the flower garden since it was so deep they weren’t getting any sun. When I first scooped the snow off, the tops were limp and leaning over, but they soon perked up and within a day all of the snow had melted from around the flowers. Success!
