March 2019

Welcome to another new year . 

It is finally March , March 2019 to be exact . Here  presently we are entering into the second week of March  2019  with  no break  from the  winter weather that has been brutalizing our area for the last 2 months .  I guess we are paying for a mild November .  Maybe climate change is moving our seasons ahead a month .  I don’t know , all I do know,  is , I am ready for spring and Wiarton Willie promised it would be soon ……..but I think he fibbed. 

Our weather this winter has been totally unexpected.  Little to no snow , unbelievably  cold temps then warmer weather coupled with  lots of freezing rain.  It is a wonder anything can survive these conditions.  The dogs are suffering from cabin fever as am I , and I stroll the gardens hoping for signs of spring.  I guess it will get here when it gets here .  

Anyway , welcome , take a look around , enjoy looking at the blooms .  Surely spring and all its color  is on its way !

Because I can’t count on Wiarton Willie and his prediction, in preparation for the inevitable coming of spring I am planting daylily seeds from some lovely crosses.  Weeding has started in the gardens  but I can’t stay out there too long right now as my fingers get stiff and unable to bend.  Tt is still quite cold even though the frost is out of the ground .  The first signs that spring is definitely on its way is the tiny white  snowdrops are in bloom and in viewing the gardens , the little nubs of daffodils and narcissus are poking out of the ground . Oh and let me not forget to mention the mud !  This time of year here the mud oozes up through the grass where ever one steps .  Waders or Billie boots as we call them are de riguer here right now .
