Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

That snow I showed you in my last post? Gone. All of it. It didn’t stand a chance when the temperatures rose to about 50F.The only remaining sign we even had snow is a sheen of moisture lingering on the flagstones.

I miss how it brightened up the landscape, and I’m sick of this weird unseasonal weather, even if it permits the survival of sage and thyme in the vegetable garden. Unheard of! (at least for me)

I realize that this post is a self indulgent rant, but I can’t help it. Sorry.

    If it helps, your sage looks better than mine. 🙂

    I do empathize with you, though. It always thought it looked like too much work ahead when the snow melted.

      How can mine look better than yours when you live in such a gentle climate? Now that’s truly weird.

        They’re “flat tuckered out” from the outrageous heat we’ve had during the summer and then a string of freezing temps. They just need a little attention. Oh…and you’re a better gardener. 🙂

        Sometimes it’s easier to just replace them. Sounds harsh, I know…

    We’re having the same type of weird weather. The snow came in very late, and didn’t last long; the weather warmed up and it all melted. I don’t know what to expect come spring.
