I didn't think the winter was EVER going to end!
The snow was piled high, the weather was still cold, it just seemed like spring was never going to get here. Then finally, the weather warmed a little. The snow started to melt!
It's amazing the difference 10 days makes!
The biggest snow drift in the yard was right on top of the back gardens.
While I figured this a good thing, my plants were well insulated, it seemed to take forever for this snow drift to melt. I watched daily, in hopes of getting to work in the garden.
Saturday was the day!
The snow drift gone, the ground dried up a little, I was finally able to get out and work in the garden.
The back beds were trimmed back, raked out, and edged.
Gosh it felt good to get back out there!
I quickly discovered there were many toads hibernating in my gardens. In 2 days, I dug up 17 toads of various sizes! Nice to know that I have so many bug eaters around!
In 2 afternoons, I was able to finish all the back beds.
The front beds are north facing and so still have snow and ice.
There is plenty of gravel to rake off the lawn until the gardens thaw.
I'm so glad to see SPRING!
