To spite the chilly wind, rain, sleet and snow, my friend and I went to a flower market called Frog Pond in Bainbridge NY.  web-frog-pomd-047

 Inside the green houses it was warm and toasty.  web-frog-pomd-023

The sound of the rain and sleet pounding on the roof did not deter our enjoyment of the flowers and plants at all.

Eventhough it is too early to put in most plants, we managed to fill our wagons with pansies and fruit. web-frog-pomd-051

 We oogled the flowers and perrenials and in our minds planned our next trip  web-frog-pomd-094
