"Great puzzle! and snow pics. There's a website you can make your favorite garden photos into puzzles (and other items). I wanted to make my mother some but they are not 1000 pieces like she preferred to work on. . ."
"Snow and ice all gone where I live. House kiddie corner from my corner is listed for sale now. Quite a surprise to wake up too.
This weather could be a false Spring, fooling us here.
I am on natural medicine from Naturopath doctor to clear clot…"
"Jan 29th and still looks like the pic below here. Warmed up to barely above freezing so melting some but my driveway is still an ice rink. Jim brought his back hoe out and took off the foot of snow but ice under it and more fell from the sky so a…"
"Going to start to warm up here, a Chinook by Friday to next Thursday.+ single , maybe double digit temperatures. Almost forgot to put wash in drier, done. All the clothes worn to deal with snow. Have 9 DVD discs from 3 photo albums almost done of…"
"Currenty it is 80f or 28c inside house, and air con is off and doors and windows open. Hotter out side in the sun, I have just come from clipping some hedges and bushes. One was camellia sasanqua, so just about to make a pot of green tea and revive…"
Thanks to all for the welcome. Today is Tuesday, March 5th, and Nashville, Tenn., has been experiencing cold, intermittant rain and snow. Had a brief warm break a few weeks ago and got started on the beds, but Thurs-Sat. promise to be 45-55 degree weather and dry, so hope to get out and set up 3-4 more raised beds. Two-thirds of the backyard is flowers and relaxing area, a third for fruit and vegetables. Planning to grow more vegetables this year, so turning grass space into raised beds. Have a bank of blackberries along the north side of the back yard, and three heavily producing fig trees, with raspberries in between two of the fig trees. Three compost pits form the eastern edge of the vegetable garden, along with an old potting shed that needs to be replaced. Planning to put in couple of connected ponds on the other side of the back yard this year, if I find the time. That side of the yard has a miniature magnolia tree, lots of Hosta varieties, ferns, flowers that reseed themselves, and rooted greenery that bursts forth as soon as spring arrives. Lots to do, but I'm bless, and I love being in the garden. Always feel closer to my God there.
"Thank you Joan for keeping up the comments. This snap dragon is called "chantilly mix" & I loved it last year so am growing it again but the seeds have been slow to sprout so might not be many. The larkspur mix was a hit as well! They…"
"Hi Joan, thanks for your comment. I haven't started planting this bed yet but I've noticed it looks like the vinca is coming back this year. Will probably see how well it fills in, then go get some more. We've had a…"
