There was enough sunlight to melt much of the snow leftover from the March 14 storm, but this flowerbed looks to the East and is shaded by the house, so it always takes its time to warm up. One corner of the beds has bulbs that get a little more sunlight.
The rest are coming along nicely and most of the snow has melted. There’s an old-fashioned saying that Spring snow is a poor man’s fertilizer. It’s true that snow at this time of year is quite good for the garden. That’s reason enough to patiently await the blooms that I will shortly enjoy.
