spring or winter: which is it this funny february?
SPRING OR WINTER? Who knows–certainly not the garden, or the weather, which is running hot-and-cold, literally, as it has all “winter” long. The last week or so has seen the first bulbs, a snowstorm (something we haven’t had but once or twice this season–just ask my unused snow shovel), and a lot of buds on early blooming shrubs daring to swell and shake off their protective coverings, despite my telling them “No, don’t do it!” A little slideshow of the vagaries of this non-February.
Click on the first thumbnail to start the slides, then toggle from image to image using the arrows on your computer keyboard or the ones beside each caption. And please: Wish us all luck, right? Teens forecast tonight, and so many of my babies refuse to wear their winter coats! (P.S.–links to full profiles of most of the included plants are just below the thumbnails.)
