Sunny, mild days are making our hands itch to get out in the garden but a little snowstorm heading toward the Ohio River Valley reminds us that it’s still March. Still, we take the opportunity to prune a little here and there, cut back the ornamental grass and generally do a little cleanup. It feels good to be out in the dirt.
Jonquils are getting ready to bloom, the hyacinths and crocus, too. I hope the snow isn’t too rough on their poor little noggins. With any amount of luck, this’ll be Ol’ Man Winter’s last gasp and spring will be with us for good.
