Snow Falls in January

Garden - January 2010
This morning, we woke up to another 6 inches of heavy wet snow...so heavy that it pulled many of the pine branches down low to the ground. I had to duck in order to get to my compost pile. So much for the January Thaw. I wonder how long it will take for this latest batch to melt.

I'm trying to remind myself that in couple of months from now, all of this will be gone. There's still so much to do and think about before our last frost date. Hopefully, I'll find the time to work on my garden plan soon.

And while the world looks pretty bleak outside, a lemon tree still manages to flower.

  2. Lovely pictures! We don’t have snow any more, but the winter is still here.
    Last year I did first outdoors garden work on March 1st, so just 1.5 months to go.

  5. I love the photos of the lemon flowers. They do remind me so spring.

    I need to work on my garden plan too. I usually do it in my head, but I'm thinking of on paper this year so I can put it on the blog. I'll see. I need a plan though so I know how many transplants to start.

  10. Beautiful pictures! I miss my citrus trees, they are at the other house, don't get to see the flowers very often.
    It's been raining and snowing on and off here all week, not pretty snow white like yours.
