Snow has sprouted everywhere!
It's May 3 and I awoke to see snow falling and the plants under a blanket of snow. The tender new branches of the white bleeding heart are straining under the snow and the botanical tulips are completely covered, with buds held tightly shut. I forgive the dog for deciding to stay inside the doghouse today (it's a "wet cold", we eventually agree).
Pictured are the well-established bergenia (foreground) and an unnamed rose, photographed this morning.
