daylily sprout sleet during February Valentine Flowers

A good part of February was warmer than usual, and the drought continued. I even had to wash off aphids from the sprouting daylilies -- unheard of during the winter. We had a very cold spell with ice and sleet on the ground for several days that melted down to a half inch of moisture. Then it was back up to unseasonably warm temperatures. I enjoyed fresh flowers in the house from the grocery store and waited for spring.
