I had planned the big ornamental grass cut-down day for Monday, but I called my helpers off because of the miserable forecast. As predicted, on Monday the weather turned wintery, and Tuesday we awoke to snow on the ground. By today, most of the snow had melted.
It's been a real tug of war between winter and spring. Of course, spring is winning, but it's a long haul getting from cold to warm this year. Judging from the long-range forecast from the Weather Network, I see it's going to take almost to the end of the month for the weather to really warm up. I guess the silver lining is that we get a good run of blooming from all those spring bulbs.
