Here in eastern Ontario the weather was miserable today, with howling winds, freezing rain, ice and some times snow.  Its nice to remember it isn’t like this everywhere!
Enjoy a glimpse of the good things to come, and know that in some places they have already begun!


“The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.”   Gertrude S. Wister

Snowdrops have flowered through the wet and windy days, now tattered and mud-spattered, still they evoke such joy in wintered hearts. Hidden in cooler frost pockets, some are only just beginning to bud, extending the joy for a few days more. All over the garden bulbs are pushing through the cold ground, Leucojum, crocus, bluebell, daffodil, grape hyacinth and Allium – assuring the gardener of a colourful Spring..

Lenten Rose The Lenten Rose (Helebore niger) break into flower, as the first primrose flowers in palest yellow, blooms in the sheltered hedgerows.
