Before you read my post and marvel at the pictures, make a note to yourself to visit Jean's Garden . Jean's post and paper on garden bloggers and Blotanical is a wonderful discussion on the virtual community we inhabit. The comments her post generated are a great read. The whole discussion is better than most presentations at ed-tech conferences I've attended. Now, before you run off, my post and pics.
This is the scene that greeted me on my way to work Friday. Imagine my chagrin. Spring break starts tomorrow and I have a list of things to do in the garden. Maybe I should turn the new flower bed into a combination pond and ice skating rink.Well, the temps reached the mid 30s and the snow melted wherever the sun hit it. Pictures of me making flower beds in the snow would have been funny but most of the snow was gone by the time I got home from school. My single little snowdrop is gone. Spring marches on. There are signs of spring all over the yard. The hellebore's are living up to their Lenten Rose name. We want move them this year because of their location. Hosta totally submerges them during the summer.
These day lilies are the offspring of mama and papa day lily from Chicago. The mother -in-law, Shirley, brought them with her the first time she visited. We now have enough to split and move around the yard or give away.
