Well, it's the last week in April, and we got more snow today. While most of the gardening blogs around the country are showing off their beautiful spring blossoms and wonderful looking gardens, we are still dealing with snow on the ground. At this altitude I am used to snow anytime up until the end of May, but it still makes it frustrating when I want to go out and clean the gardens. Not to mention plant some stuff. The perennials are trying to grow, and the crocus have pushed out their buds, but that's about it.
The Peonies are starting to grow, although it would be nicer if they were still sleeping. About 3 out of 4 springs they get hit by a very late frost and lose some of their buds, but they are still beautiful. They are one of my few non-waterwise perennials in the gardens.
