Gardendote of the Day 2013-03-21
Encouragingly, there are buds on my filbert trees!
So perhaps this spring thing isn't a myth or a rumor. Also, "dead snow," I don't know a better word for it, but it's the kind of snow I really hate, rather like coarsened slush.
NOTE Filberts because they're good nut trees for cold weather, and nut trees because nuts are edible. Granted, I have to think about squirrels....
