Slept through two, [two!] alarms this morning after my first glorious day of playing in the mud.
Do you have micro-climates? They're a big deal in this mountain garden, with spring arriving a full month earlier in the hot spots. I suppose that's because intense mountain sunshine bakes the big rocks ~ which serve as a natural space heater, keeping seedlings warm long after the sun goes down.
My cooler (full sun) gardens still hold die hard drifts of snow, taking their sweet time as they melt into memory.
This being the 15th, it is Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day but I just don't have enough pretty things to participate. So, pop over to Carol's and see what's cooking in kinder climates! :)
