Oh How We Love the Rain - Even if it is White

Well, we made it, nine days this time, without snow. Each snowstorm I decide it will be the last, but a week later, here we go again. This one has been a terrific moisture producer, as of 3:30 this afternoon. We have had 2.4 inches so far and its still coming down. We do not often get these long drawn out moisture producers, and this one will keep things green for weeks.

Everything is looking green out back, should get even better now

Our perennials look good, even in the snow, and the first of the wildflowers were just starting to open up. That is why I have not bought a bunch of flowers and set them out, no need, it is still too early.

Wildflowers getting a good start, we saw these yesterday (Monday)

I did plant Potatoes, peas, and radishes, nothing up yet. I like to get the earliest possible vegetables and don’t mind if I have to replant. Plus, a few seeds are only half a pocket full of change or less.

Tulips don't last long, but they put on a nice show in April

Spring rain and snow are the norm, not the exception in Wyoming, and it is great to see. All too soon we may be talking about how dry it is and how we wished it would rain.

Spring means the North Platte is up and looking good again

Meanwhile, keep on gardening. 

It's almost time for the old guy to put on the shorts

All your pictures are very pretty. It snowed here in Vermont for a while then stopped. Take care and good luck on your garden.

Thanks, Sheryl, things are looking a little better today but still snow on the ground. Looks like next week I will be hiking and playing golf again, oh, and working in the garden.
