What a Difference a Week Makes

With April’s mix of rain, snizzle or snow (depending on your altitude) and a warm day or two in between, it’s amazing the difference a week can make in your garden. Here’s proof how quickly things are sprouting.

So on this overcast Monday, it is still April; don’t underestimate what today can bring. Ambrose Bierce’s definition of day is quite interesting although you won’t find this one in your tried and true Webster Dictionary. “Day, n. A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent.” Up and at ‘em; your spring garden awaits you!

Images of Rheum palmatum var. tanguticum (Common name - Ornamental rhubarb) and garlic taken last week by Greg Bilowz
Today’s images taken by Ann Bilowz (Remember I don't use the big boy camera!)

P.S. I’ll be posting a pic or two on our Facebook Page of some not quite blossoming Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) found on my rainy Saturday morning walk with the Border Collies. I’ll have to see if yesterday’s warm air opened these early spring flowers up to a full blossom.
