Hello everyone. How is your week going?
Here winter is refusing to leave and has returned with snow flurries and cold winds again. After a few days of melting snow it was strange to see the lawn again even if it is very brown. The brown lawm may not last long if the storm that is suppose to come this weekend produces what that they are predicting.
I brought the potting soil in from the garden shed and let it get warm and then started sowing some seeds Monday.
It felt good to sow some seeds and play in the dirt for a while.
What I really want to be doing is cleaning the yard of sticks and the beds from oak leaves that have blown in. The Hellebores need the old leaves cut away because buds are starting to form.
My to do list of things to do this Spring just keeps getting longer and I am frankly anxious to see what comes up and what does not.
I have to redo the water pond and because of the wet conditions last year I did not get any mulching done in the beds. I have manure to add to the rose garden and other beds. And of course it just goes on and on. LOL!
Under the melting snow the Hyacinths, Daffodils and Tulips were waiting just for those few days of warm weather to get them to sprouting. Now some have brown tipped edges because of the cold. But although all these things are what we gardeners complain about we relish each new Spring and itch to get at it and back out into the garden where we also are regenerated after a long winter and we are at peace once again.
Everyone have a wonderful week and weekend ahead.
