Looking for Any Sign of Green, Herbally Speaking!

Have to Start with Deer Poop!
Mache for Salad!
Mountain Mint Thriving!

Mullein in a Good Place!

The Rosemary Santolina Took a Hit!
Well, we had a nice warm day here in the 'Burgh!  You know it isn't going to last especially this season.  We are ALL tired of winter here, but tomorrow we are going to get more snow.  It will come first as rain so by the end of the day, we will get a couple of inches of slushy snow.  Not my favorite.  Could bring a power outage.  Although we have not had one power outage all winter.  Quick knock on wood!

So on this beautiful day, I decided to trek to the middle range of the garden to see what might be green and see what the deer have been browsing.  So you see above some of our green that has already come out.  We have a lot to clean up, but I enjoy it.  It is my favorite time of year.  I think we have lost a lot of plants, but never fear The Herbal Husband says we can get new ones!  Yippee!  We will see when we actually find what is alive later on.  So hopefully  you have had a great day wherever you may be.  Spring can't come soon enough, but not yet!

I have a new philosophy towards lost plants, when once upon a time I got upset, now I say its mother nature's way of giving me room to continue adding to the garden.
Hope spring comes for you soon, here the days are warming up, herbs are emerging from their winter slumber and we're getting more sun. So far we've had no snow beyond a light flutter that didn't even settle on the ground, not much frost either. I keep waiting for the harsh winter to emerge. Still time right in to May in this wacky climate we have today! Big warm, sunny hugs HS!

Sorry that you two are getting more snow. I'd be so tired of winter if I lived in the north lands this year.

Rain is expected here today.

Hope you will see more green in your gardens soon.

Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady

I would agree wholehearted with your philosophy, Herbaholic! I even have The Herbal Husband thinking that way! xo

It has just started snowing here, FL! Getting tired of winter. Hope you don't get too much rain! We will turn the corner here eventually, dear!

Thanks for stopping by ladies! xo
