I go online and visit other blogs and people are showing their spring flowers.
So I thought I'd take you for a small stroll outside and show you mine.
Here's the same flower bed today that's in the photo above:
Here's another of the same flower bed. I'm not complaining ~ just a few weeks ago you couldn't even see the rocks and driftwood.
Yes ~ we are still up to our knees in snow!!
The snow banks are going down though ... just not fast enough. You can actually see the ground now between the snow bank and the sidewalk. Yay!!
Here's the fairy garden that runs the length of the garage:
It's melting ... but at this rate our springtime will soon be into summer. Our growing season is getting shorter and shorter. We still won't be able to put the garden in until June. The snow will be gone; but we still have to wait for the frost to get out of the ground before planting. Seeds won't germinate no matter how soon you plant them if the ground temperature isn't warm enough.
Then come September ... mid October we'll be right back into winter weather again. Yes, it's a challenge growing a garden up here in Agriculture Zone 3 aka. the frozen tundra. The Alaskan coastline has warmer weather and a better growing season than this section of Wisconsin.
Oh well ... what you gonna do - 'cuz I have no intention of moving.
So ~ I patiently await the warmer weather ... but I really hope it comes on soon! I already ordered and received my garden seed and around the 15th of this month my mushroom spores will be arriving. I'm getting the itch to get into the dirt :)
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
