Winter Winter Go Away-A Gardener's Lament

I know the calendar is saying it's April and Spring is here, but really? Last night I drove through light snow to get to a meeting in Kennett Square. The wind was cruel and fellow attendees tried to talk about anything but the weather.

spireaSo, I get it. We have no control over it. But still my garden is trying to do its usual Springtime thing. Daffodils are still blooming, primroses are trying hard to bloom, the spirea is sending forth white sprays of tiny blossoms, and the flowering quince is trying very hard for its buds to open.

Then, it suddenly occurred to me that I needed to find a new landscaper to apply mushroom compost mulch to my flower beds. Hope the guy someone on Nextdoor recommended comes through with a daffodilsbid. And will the neighbor's teenage son really come through with his promise to cut my grass this year or will his sports practice keep him away.

Be patient, I tell myself. Look forward to meeting with the owner of a significant historic house later this week. Help them market this seldom seen gem! At least I can control the historic homes front better than the weather!

Yes loved your post, and the headline, indeed Gardner's and their lively hood get affected by the extended Winter... here in the Greater Los Angeles area it is an all year around job, but not all Gardner's are created equal just like Realtors:)Endre
