Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

There'll Be No Work on the Gravel Garden Today!

Because it's a snow day!

We woke up this morning to a surprise amount of snow. I knew there was a threat of it in the forecast,  but I thought it was going to just be occasional snow showers. It's been snowing pretty heavily.

I think the garden will survive this time. It's not like the ice storm in January that wreaked such havoc. And it gives me longer to continue picking out plants for the new garden.

The view out the front door. The tree on the left is the one that lost its upper half in the ice storm.

The birds are all over the feeder. These two stalwarts held out even when I stepped out onto the back porch.

The Euphorbia 'Red Wing' that I bought at the plant sale last weekend, with a dusting of snow on it.

It's supposed to turn to showers by the afternoon, and then rain for the rest of the week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the weather forecasters got it right.
