But flowers are still delightful...
We are again having a cold snap so it is still feeling very wintery. These primula are from last spring.
Since we still have snow, the perennials won't be bothered by the cold, and probably a few weeks from now, the crocus and snowdrops will be blooming. The seasons change very quickly some years.
I'm hoping this cold will also knock back the ticks which have been more numerous the past few years. We have Lyme disease in our area so ticks are a concern for people and pets.
My cherry tomatoes have sprouted. I used a plastic clam-shell to make a mini greenhouse and that helped the seeds to sprout.

I'd like to thank Dee at a Rosy View for sharing all her wonderful rose photos. It's always a treat to see the roses in my blog reading list. She has been assembling an amazing collection of rose pictures and it's always cheering to see them all.

He talked about a lot of things so it is pretty hard to summarize it in a few words, but he has a really good understanding of how societies work . He is a social psychologist and has a lot of insight into our current society. I highly recommend the video. It's almost two hours long but well worth the time spent watching it. If you want you can speed it up to 1 1/2 times normal speed , you get through it faster . I wasn't able to give a direct link to it but I really hope that you will go to his channel and watch this video and others that he has made.
March is giving us typical weather: warm and rainy followed by cold and dry.

I've made an order of seeds from Halifax Seeds. I am indulging myself this year and buying some seed tapes. One will have a mixture of different varieties of beets, and the other one will have three different kinds of carrots. I will enjoy not having to thin the carrots. I also ordered a bean called Jackpot which is a cross between a bush and runner bean. It is suitable for a container and has pretty red and white blossoms so it is decorative as well as useful.
