Want to see an anxious gardener get angry? Just wait until after a snow! Last night we were expecting rain and I should have realized this would probably mean snow. Remind me to come back in my next life as a weather reporter, you only have to be right 50% of the time. This morning I quickly added frost cloth to the newly planted grape vines, lavender, pea plants and mint. Now it's fingers crossed that this all survives!
It's funny because each year I can't wait to start gardening. This year I've been trying to focus on getting the hardscape and the soil mixtures ready telling myself that I can't plant until after Mother's Day. Still, a few things slipped into our car and fell into the ground completely without my notice. Yep, garden fairies!
So, while I'm staring out the window and praying to the snow, soil, and plant gods this morning I hope everyone is off to a great, or at least better than mine, day!
