Oh, the Bloomanity!


The gardeners planted pansies on Saturday in the large concrete pots
 around downtown Indy, possibly in anticipation of 
the NCAA Basketball Tournament games being hosted 
later this week. What they surely didn't plan on was the early spring
snowstorm that blew into town late Sunday, dropping about 
10 inches of snow onto the newly planted blooms.
The daffodil above had its neck snapped by the weight of the snow.
Its death in the yard of Christ Church Cathedral recalled
the albino killer in The DaVinci Code, while the poor pansies,
just planted, well, surely a failed Arctic expedition.

AUGH!
That's brutal, Speedway.
When spring gets here I'm going to kick its ass for being so late.

Fortunately, pansies are pretty hardy and I am sure that some of the daffodils will have survived the snow dump as well.
Great title.
