Snow babies

Gardener’s spring nightmare: it snows.

That’s what happened. After days of rain, snow flurries and then snow covering all those baby seedlings. Turns out the bed of snow actually saved the seedlings and seeds by insulating them from the 20 degree weather and a killing frost next day.

    It sounds like a meteorological and horticultural example of “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” They look beautiful, and I feel better about having enjoyed the snow.
