I don't think people here would stop even if we didn't have the resources, its one of the major party/drinking holidays here. When we were there for St. Pats day in '03 I was in shock because of the difference between a real Irish celebration and the Chicago/Illinois version. People thought I was crazy when I told them they dye the river green and drink green beer and have custom made floats and if you don't wear green you get attitude. So snow won't stop anyone here.

Whenever we get snow here, the whole place comes to a standstill. We don't have the resources to cope!

Here there are always plans for a snowstorm on St. Pats day. But it doesn't stop anyone from being crazy.

No, we do not take weather lightly here, anything could still happen with the way it went for the last 2 years! This year so far it has been too mild for comfort!

I didn't hink it snowed over there for St. Pats week. Aren't you in the clear already?

Comment by Catherine Cronin (Ireland) on February 26, 2012 at 1:15pm

Please keep ye're snow over there! I have planted and we nearly have fine weather...LOL!

We still have our snow from Friday's storm, and the week is suppose to bring lots of rain. But it's sunny out so that is a good thing. 43 right now.

Gees Cynthia....that is some tall, healthy looking plant!!

Comment by Vicky Myers on February 25, 2012 at 12:15pm
I say if it is doing fine leave it alone. If you are talking about the tall plant in the bottom pic it looks like it is in a fairly big pot already. The top pic is Xed out on my puter.

Birdbath and Tulips, Fern against ivy wall in our garden.

The ivy wall is over a fence put up by our neighbor. My daughter surprised me with this birdbath and the Tulips are because I'm from Holland. We have a long way to go on the garden but at least we have the flowers started!
