The Calm Before the Snow

Okay, so there’s a little trickery going on with our weather patterns this week. What little is sprouting in the garden must continue to duke it out with the snow shovel. Who wins this match is yet to be determined.

A wise word of advice: pinch yourself and relax. Give yourself a reminder that we just entered the throes of early spring. Mother Nature can toss anything at us and humble the best of the old-time gardeners who brag ‘they’ve seen it all’. So why fight the weather? Just relax and enjoy the calm before the snow.

With white stuff lurking in the forecast, let’s end with a Harriet Ann Jacobs quote. "The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also." Just in case, have some spring sniffing salts handy for reviving your garden spirit. Let’s hope this beaten up snow shovel doesn’t have any heavy lifting scheduled for tomorrow morning.
