    Beautiful Spring Day Gardening

    Up here at 3000' elevation the sun was out, the temp around 70 degrees. We've been here about 4 years, so I'm getting used to the seasons, floral in the area, the soil (clay and rockName:  columbine 002.jpg

Size:  1.97 MB, before we had beautiful sandy loam), and planting for deer. I've loved columbine for years but couldn't grow them in the San Joaquin Valley where we lived before. So I got out there and planted 5 of them with lots of mulch and then thyme and oregano around them. Then pruned about 8 feet off the top of some bushes to get air and light in the area. I think columbine would make a nice quilt block. Think I'll take some pictures.

    They are beautiful and kudoes to you for planting what is native to the area. You look like you have a green thumb!

    Are you trying to make me jealous with your beautiful blooms and warm weather? It's mid 20s here with a wind chill in the teens.

    here it's 25 degrees- we received 12" of snow last night- have a 4 foot drift across the driveway & schools were closed again today because of bad roads- (if this keeps up those poor kids are going to be in school til the 4th of July this year-trying to get their school year in) it is snowing again now...so bad i can not see the next door neighbor's house...Happy spring --maybe it will get here in May...the ski resorts are already planning an April ski schedule.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy
