Well, I have just finished two hours of work covering the flowers with leaf mulch and then tarps, held down by a variety of means from nails into landscape timbers to rocks and logs. Spring is usually the one season where we have an abundance of flowers and I hate to see it lost. Will hope for the best and now go back out to get some wood for the wood stove. This will be the first time it has been used since late November, as it is usually reserved for temperatures below the mid 20sF. Nothing notable compared to what has been the case in Europe recently, but none-the-less significant for us.

No one has seen a winter like this around here before that I have talked to. Currently we are getting a couple of inches of snow. -13 tonight getting above freezing by the end of the week.
I'm somewhat worried that we may get a real cold snap with no snow to protect plants.
We just planted a couple of Paw Paw's in the fall that we grew from seed. The very warm winter may end up causing problems.
