Fingers crossed! Having eaten outside on a deck in Madison on Easter Sunday, and had my mil dig up flowers for me to bring home, that snow is just uncalled for!!

I know! Easter was so gorgeous I spent most of the day playing in the garden.

Yuck! A frost warning here in the Portland area last night had a few people scrambling (38 at my house). NO snow though! I hope everything is okay.

This is so unfair! Enough is enough.

YIKES! I thought of you when I heard the national weather report this morning. Every weather report these days has bizarre elements it seems. I hope your treasured plants come through this latest snowfall unscathed.


Very interesting to see your Maratgon lilies - I planted some last fall and they are thus of course much more sparse being in their first year. They are also wildly different heights, vs yours; some about 4 i and some 24 inches tall. All seem to have a cluster of buds. Hopefully they won't bloom when I am out of town, but that's pretty much what I am anticipating.

At least there won't be snow.

I hope your efforts paid off. What a kick in the pants (plants) this weather can be. Here we are about to drown. We have had almost double the rain we normally get in April. We might get to the doubled figure due to more rain predicted. I am going to try to remember this when it drys up to nothing.

Mine are fairly old and getting too crowded. They open somewhat slowly and the flowers last a while so maybe you won't miss them.

Looks like everything made it through. Now we've got a few days of rain. I had hoped to get my new plants in the ground at the end of last week but held off because of the frost/snow. Suddenly I feel behind!

I have decided that it is no longer possible to judge what the garden or weather should be doing by our past experience. Simply pay attention to weather reports and hope for the best. I have a bunch of plants now sitting on the deck waiting for three or four days of rain to finish and then to dry out enough to plant them. I could have done the job last Thursday except for the frost warning. Everything seems to have made it through OK. I am trying to make some notes so I can remember for the future what I should cover and what will be OK on its own.


Yikes! I hope your covered babies made it through unscathed.

Linda from Each little World

Everything made it through OK and now I am trying to decide if I helped things or they would have been OK on their own. The Peony I did not protect was flat on the ground yesterday. Raining now so I haven't looked to see how it's doing now.
