347 Days Later: Snow Again

That might sound like a lot of snow-free days to northern gardeners, but in central Texas, that's an amazingly short span.  Last year, on February 23, the garden received 1-2 inches of snow.  Looks like we have a repeat.

Though last year, it wasn't preceded by almost three days of below freezing temperatures - so though quite pretty, its really adding insult to injury to my garden.

We are supposed to creep up to barely above freezing this afternoon (much to the relieve of the plants), so much of the white, fluffy stuff will melt away.  Especially with a nice daytime warming trend predicted for the weekend.

And I'm starting to see blue skies and sunshine.  Let the thaw begin.


  1. Whimsical: Thanks. It does have a peaceful, calming effect on everything - until it melts and see what lies beneath.
