Still winter

Well it's April 15th and it's still Winter in Denver. last Monday I took this picture of a few of my 60 hyacinths in bloom. We expected a huge storm with really cold temps. I picked as many bulb blooms as I could and covered as many as garden fabric would allow. Wednesday morning it was a record 6 deg and every blossom in Denver froze beyond repair. All daffodils, all tulips, all raspberries and roses and what made me the saddest: all fruit tree blossoms. That means no fruit and no more flowers from bulbs. And now it's snowing again. We will be in the 30s and lower until Friday. Where's a beach?
