I couldn't stand it any longer! My herb garden is out from all of the snow and I had to pull the first grass clumps, look for the first green (salad burnet), unflatten the plants and trim a few things (garlic chives) back before the rain starts later today. Just as I thought in some cases, the snow kept the plants in suspended animation. The lavenders were flattened, but the 'Nazareth' sages were pretty intact! Hopefully everything will withstand the rain coming! Not as much as Ivan but some creeks and streams are already flooding! Spring is almost here!
