March has arrived!

March is here, and if the weather prognosticators are correct (I give them a 50/50 chance), then we’re in for “above average” temperatures in March and April.  Winter made its lingering presence known this past week, however.  Snow, the beloved “wintry mix,” and sub-zero temperatures all made an appearance.  It’s 0 degrees as I write this at 7:30am with a high of 27 expected today.  But looking out over the next ten days, I see nothing but 40s and 50s as day time highs.  I suspect our unusually low snow pack will be history by the end of next week.  If that does happen, and the borders dry up a bit over the next couple of weeks, I may be able to get outside and begin the much needed clean-up and cutback of the perennials.

Meanwhile, in the cozy warmth of the front guest bedroom, my first batch of sown seeds have germinated (with the coneflowers and crocosmia lagging behind a bit).  It’s always a wonder to see that first bit of green emerge.
