Arose to find an inch of snow and still snowing. Do not think my groundhog will be out today. Steve in Baltimore County.

Good morning, Steve. I live about 70 miles west of you in Berkekey County, WV. We got about three inches overnight, and it's snowing here, again, too. I doubt we'll see the ground hog, today, either!

I'm supposed to go to church in 30 minutes to help count yesterday's offering. I'll give it a try, but if the roads are bad, I'm coming back home!

Stay warm andinside, if possible. Happy Spring!

RE: welcome springtime

It has been cold at night and sunny and warm in the day-time and I have spent the afternoons out gardening. I am determined to pull all the grassy weeds in the beds before the late spring rains make them 6 ft. tall and they go to seed,as it was the last two springs because of so many rainy days. Today I shall take the weed-whacker to them to cut them down in areas where nothing is sprouting yet - then there shall be a week of rain and I'll have to stay indoors and fid things to do - I'm sure I shall not get bored.

Since midnight rain, snow, freezing rain, snow again and now strong very cold winds. It's 34 degr, but factor in the windchill and it's 19 degr. Went this morning to my chiropractor and was the only human on the road on the 2 mile stroll.

It has been warm here the last few weeks and one of my lettuce plants is starting to bolt. The others are not far behind. So much for cool weather plantings.

RE: welcome springtime

We are not the only ones with springtime problems. The city of Leipzig, Germany, ordered 11 700 pansies from a local nursery for their parks and city street plantings.
They were to be planted in the first week of March. Snow and frost since has prevented the planting and the nursery needs to get rid of the plants because they have to get ready and need the space for their summer plants. Now the city is desperately looking for a frostfree hall to store the plants until they can get in the ground.

If it arrived to your country, can You please ask it to come faster to Poland? We are tired of the snows blocking our plants from growing :(((

Hello ANWA_, welcome to the Garden Party. If I knew how, I'd send some of our California warm temps to Poland. I'm from Norway, and I can identify about a cold spring.

Hi there, ANWA. Welcome to the Garden Party. I can't give you any gardening advice, but think your web site is nice. My only problem is that I don't know a WORD of Polish! LOL

Steve, thanks for the link. How impressive the band is! Those formations are incredibile; That kind of perfection takes a lot of dedication and school spirit. I also saw some band perfectiions from Marshall University, Do you think there's anything that can't be found on the 'net, if one really wants to search? It's almost scary, IMO.

Again, thanks for the link.

Happy Easter.
