Just wondering if anyone has a shovel which I can borrow to find my garden??

Here in eastern Newfoundlnad we did have a little hope for Spring prior to yesterday, at least a lot of the snow was gone; however, now it looks much more like mid January than later March - everything is covered with ice and snow.

Caleb! Nice to see you again. I'm soooo glad someone else is still having winter weather. I don't feel so lonely anymore! :lol:

Well, I asked my husband to snowblow the path so I could get around into the yard. There are a few bare patches of earth, but no nubbies. Sigh.

You bet, I'm in Richmond, where it was nice and sunny today.... for a change.

For sure you are not alone. Saturday morning I spied my first robin, Sunday afternoon a grackle had arrived back, today we have the red snowfall warning posted. Apparently the robin and grackle had not checked the forecast first.

At least it is not that cold, so hopefully will not take that long to disappear.

Saw a grackle yesterday . . . today 10 to 15 cm of snow is forcast,and we always get more than predicted . . . BUT it is still spring and I can see crocus and tulips sprouting . . . . until the white stuff covers them again . . . :roll: :lol:

How does that saying go? better late than never?

Finally got my camera outside and bulbs are sprouting like crazy.

The white wire squares are from a storage box kit and keep the squirrels out of the earth. The tricky part is when the leaves get bigger, but once they reach a certain size the the little dears don't bother any more.

BTW. that's my hibiscus top left that's still wrapped up. When should I take the protection away?

YAY Joan! I'm envious!

The back yard (north side is still 2 feet deep in snow but I can see brown grass out front. The gardens are still covered though and our temps are still quite a bit below normal. :roll:

Most of my nubbies look like yours, Joan (except for the daffies, I have no daffies :cry: ), but these little pretties are popping up in the back lawn!

Tulips are about 2-3" tall...depending on the garden!
