So yesterday Phil, the groundhog, did not see his shadow for once! Spring is supposedly on the way, however, it is still snowing like crazy! I didn't need Phil to tell me spring was close. My dog's shedding early told me what I knew already! Today I see my hydrangea tried to leaf out already. Unfortunately it will be frost bitten considering how sensitive they are.
I may not be able to harvest my garlic this year. I will be getting a larger garden soon! One with more sun so that I can grow to my heart's content! I will be bringing my Cypripediums and Peonies though! And if I can, my saffron crocuses also...if I can find them all. So depending on how quickly our old house sells, I may or may not have fresh homegrown garlic this year and that is quite disappointing to even contemplate about!
