Judy, I have a hard time imagining how your climate is different than mine. My colchicums all bloomed and went by long before the first snow fell here. And either you’ve had quite a bit more thaw than we have, or you’ve got X-ray vision! I certainly wouldn’t be able to see anything blooming underneath a foot or more of snow, which is what we’ve got on the ground right now.
In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
