It's Where?

Home & Garden > April on the River
 

April on the River

March and April are our snowiest months, and this year is proving the truth of it. 11 inches of snow fell Friday.



Because our growing season is so short, I have a lot of seeds started indoors. This is pine trees. Not that I needed pine trees, but found some seeds on top of the snow a couple months ago, so planted them to see what happens.



Today I'm going to give them some plant food. Meanwhile, my other seedlings are coming up, arrayed on the dining room table to catch some sunlight, and I look forward to summer flowers.

You live in such a wonder-land! Love the seedlings. Sending good thoughts to your planting endeavors. I know you have to time everything between cold spells!

The first year of my garden when I wasn't trying very hard was the most successful. rather than be disappointed, I've finally settled on the few things that do relatively well.

I like the little pine trees. And I'm trying not to be envious of that deep blue sky in the first picture.

Yes, that sky is really something - the contrast with the white snow, I guess. Best thing about living here is gloomy weather seldom lasts very long. We didn't used to have snow plowing or road salt - just waited for the sun to melt off the ice and snow. And then out of state people moved to Colorado and told us that was unacceptable.

I have two new aloe plants and a lot of weeds to pull. The wind is blowing so hard today...maybe a portent of tornados.

Our vegetation is still in winter mode - the weeds haven't shown up yet. It's hard to imagine that flowers are blooming in other parts of the country.
