Snow this morning in Oregon too.  I'm not liking it one bit.  My friend, who is not a gardener, thinks it is great.  My faries are all still tucked away, sad to say.

Patti, I'm in No CA. We are finally getting snow in the coastal mountains. Winter's finally arrived and tomorrow is the first day of spring.

I am in Washington State.  While the rest of the US is having record heat we are having record cold.

We too are having record warmth (70's instead of 50's). Snow and cold are still very possible but ... I worked at creating the space for the wee/fairy garden today and have the aches and pains to prove it.  Garden progress photos to come.

Look fwd. to your pics, Robin.  Your gnome sounds adorable.  :) 

Patti, do you live in the higher elevation?  We are reeling here with record setting temps this month.. not just here and there but day after day!  It's 81º right now where it is usually 50 more or less.  Been buying stuff the last couple of months but since March can be so volatile I'm waiting awhile to make sure spring is genuinely here!

We had a last day of winter snow this morning.  My fairies are safe and warm in cartons in my craft room.

I picked up a new mini gnome for my lil garden. I picked him up from Target last night. I rarely pay full price for garden things but he was holding a frog and wearing a purple shirt so it was fate that I have him. When I get him move into his new place I will post a picture :)

Carol, I found a beautiful tiny $ store Fairy yesterday and a larger one at a local pharmacy (1/2 price too!!!). Still too early to get them in the garden in my area.

Hi Carol. . . $ store and thrift stores have funded my fairy fever from the beginning.  Even my grandchildren love the thrift store hunt for fairy houses, stones, miniatures and fairies.  Have fun.
