The days are getting warmer and the backyard only sees patches of ice and snow. It’s time to take stock of what survived, what didn’t, and any surprises or tragedies.
|This last winter was a doozy. It was cold but we had a wonderful blanket of snow. Unfortunately, the snow did not cover my boxwood or bamboo very well. They are sunburnt. I blame myself. I should have taken an extra step to cover them this past winter. But c’est la vie.|
|Also, many planters are busted. All season my… so frustrating. The biggest surprise was the rain barrel. I specifically diverted the water but looking at it now, I guess a storm knocked the arm of and it flowed directly into the barrel. The power of water is amazing sometimes. Frustrating at other times.|
|But the great surprises are the signs of life already emerging. I can’t believe the backyard is warm enough for these things to pop up. I believe it is my siberica but might be the snow-drops. Hmm… will keep you updated 🙂|
