Blast of Winter
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.
