If you watch the news, you must be aware of the winter storm that hit the southeast this weekend. In our SE Alabama town, we saw four inches of snow. Incredible! Too bad our kids were down with the flu, otherwise they would have been able to help Dad build the snowmen (some better than others honey).
It was quite picturesque seeing everything blanketed in white. Made my poor rose shrubs look more pathetic and sickly, but if you squint just right, you can make them disappear.
Needless to say the weather has prevented me from doing much in the gardens thus far. But not for long. I've got a feeling spring is just around the corner.
P.S. In other news, I'm experimenting with bulbs. I planted a few tulip bulbs in December and almost gave up hope. But seems like this cold weather was just the thing they needed for they decided to finally break the surface. Can't wait to have a tulip boquet on my mantle.
