I hope the weather turns much warmer and more conducive to work in the garden after this week's rain is done, Linda. I'm sure it will make your garden shine all the brighter (at least when it's behind you).


You've really had some ups and downs! Similar weather here and fortunately the tornados were at least an hour away... although no tornadoes would have been nicer...
Rain and warmer weather the next few days, I expect spring will explode!

FRANK — There is a "tornado alley" that runs through Wisconsin. For years, the urban legend was that we didn't have to worry here in Madison, as a tornado would not hit us because we're located between two lakes. ​Not true. We have really only had touchdowns nearby, as opposed to one that stays on the ground and travels. But those touchdowns have been as close as a half mile away.

My brother-in-law's house was on a street that was the epicenter of a damaging tornado a number of years ago. That was in a town about 15 miles away. Luckily they were away on vacation. Their house was ruined because of a foundation shift. But it was still standing, so all their important documents etc. were not sent into the skies to be lost forever. There have been 86 tornadoes in our county of level 2 or above since 1951. When those sirens go off, we take it seriously.

KRIS — You are right that all the rain will really make the garden pop — one of these days.

Yesterday was one of those typical PNW Spring days where we got sun, rain, and hail—all accompanied by massive wind. Thankfully there are a couple of sunny dry day in our week's forecast. I hope you get a couple soon!

DANGER — ​Ah, spring.


That is a lovely shot! I hope that your snow is finally finished. My Bloodroot and Hellebores are in their full glory right now and my Bluebells are starting to bud. Love my ephemerals, and I'm happy that they're spreading.

Linda Brazill

KRISTIN — Warmer today and some sun, so I cut back Hellebore foliage as they are starting to pop. Also saw some Fritillary stems coming up that I caged. Last year the rabbits ate the first clump before I realized they were up. Think I will use the next rainy day to make cages for lilies as they are rabbit candy,
