-10 for Sunday night Smitty.

Luckily nothing that can be killed by it is up, I've got more than enough leaves to bury them in.

My three days of Spring are over...back to winter winds and rain now, she said, wistfully.

My lilacs just burst into leaf today.

The snow was miserable. my roses are pouting, but only one stuck its nose out. The others are hunkered down muttering. The crocus is hiding in the leaves, but I know they're there. No signs of the daffs yet.

I've got muddy pawprints everywhere as we are up to three dogs. I just rescued a very fat whippet x on top of my senior rottweiler and my puppy sheppy. She's cost me an arm, leg and half a car in vet bills but it's worth it to have her in less pain.

Now my partner is eyeing up a Doberman puppy (amazing bloodlines, amazing breeder, amazing puppy, badly injured as a teeny one and unshowable) so might be up to four soon.... that's alot of grass damage and dug up flowers :oops:

My tulips, day lilies, ditch lilies and irises are all inches high. My echinacea overwintered nicely and sprouted, the honeysuckle broke buds. They don't seem to be pouting too hard at the sleet

The 50 Crocus bulbs planted last fall have multiplied to about 125 or so and are in full bloom. Kinda wishing now that I had planted even more of them, but there is always this fall to add some...or maybe some Daffs to keep critters at bay. Tulips and some of the Daffs are poking through too, but won't be blooming for a while. Almost everything has at least a touch of green, except a few fall blooming plants. Spent three hours cleaning up debris and adding compost to a low lying area. It felt so great to be out there. I feel for those of you with crappy weather.
