Snowy owl flies north. I've never seen one, but it sounds like they're more common in Vermont, so maybe I will one day. When we first began searching for a place to move, we considered many places across the country... It took a while before we were willing to entertain a spot farther north, with a colder climate, a lower hardiness zone, and fewer exciting things in the bulb catalogs to plant. Now, with northern Vermont in our future, I'm looking forward to other species - plants and animals both - that thrive only where the freeze goes deeper. So, there will be no Anemone coronaria for me - but perhaps a snowy owl!
