What an exciting couple of days of snow. It started here on Sunday and didn’t stop in our neck of the woods until yesterday…there has been no snow since so I think it is just going away slowly now. There are patches of grass in the garden, mostly around the shrubs and trees, but even more exciting than that is the fact that I can see little shoots of plants coming up! This house was in an awful state when we moved here and the garden was so neglected in general that I didn’t believe I’d have any pleasant surprises. How wrong can I be? It’s wonderful and that bout of snow didn’t put me off my spring time prep!
