Snow More.

The snow is melting quickly. The roads are nearly completely clear. It's 36 degrees and sunny. There is a cold wind blowing from the West.

Friday, I got the strings laid out for one of the lower potager beds.



The hoophouse hasn't been bothered by snow, ice, or wind.



The gully still has plenty of snow.



The stream is a great source of water for the birds.



I noticed on Friday that I had poppy seedlings in the meadow.



There's lots of standing water everywhere. The soil is saturated.



The camellia shed all her blooms.



Another crocus has bloomed. When the sun hits it, it will open.



I'm off tomorrow. The forecast is for sunny and 47 degrees. I'll spend part of the day removing the leaves from the meadow bed. I need to mulch them and respread them. I'm hoping the sunshine next week will cause more poppies to sprout along with whatever other seeds remain.

Sprouts of wonderful things to come. Melting snow, blue skies, and sunshine. Spring is coming. Your hoop house looks great.

Looks like things melted quickly for you. We got about 3-4 inches overnight and most of it is still here. It is sticking well enough that I think we will be losing one of the Leyland Cypress in the back yard. I've been ready to do some yard work, just not this kind.
