At long last, there are some 60s in the forecast! The snow has been melting fast, but still not quite fast enough for an impatient gardener! We are still concerned about flooding, however. The National Weather Service says that there is 10 inches of water in this snow pack! Our well house is already flooding. After such a hard winter, I do wish we could relax now and enjoy Spring! Oh well. On the bright side again, I had to show you my growing seedling population!
The Castor Beans are growing incredibly fast! It is exactly one month since I planted them.
Such a beautiful plant!
The young leaves are quite glossy!
More seedlings...what on earth was I thinking when I planted 72 basil plants? That I really like basil I guess, but I'm not sure where I'll put them all! :D
And what is this? Bare ground!!!
Various objects that I totally forgot the existence of have been popping out of the snow all week. The top of my birdbath just appeared this morning...I was beginning to think it had dissolved or something!
A lake is forming in the potato field across the road.
I'm writing this with a puppy in my lap, by the way! This is Sadie. :)
Hopefully I'll be able to show you some Spring bulbs poking their way up before too long! This sure has been a slow Spring, and we had so much snow to get rid of. I'm sure most of you are already seeing some Spring flowers by now. :)
