May 6, 2015 in Garden History

If you live in northern Alberta, you probably woke up to the same weather we did today. Our little herb corner in the patio looked like this on Monday...

Here's what it looked like, viewed from above on Wednesday.

J and I hustled out there and brought in some of the more delicate, moveable green things.  The rest got the old bath towel treatment.  By the end of the day, the towels were sopping wet and forlorn.   Hopefully it gave them a little insulation anyway.

Here's the view from Kia's balconey.  It would actually be quite pretty if we had not been just recovering from winter and feeling all hopeful about spring!

Inside plants, outside plants.

Ironically, the snow provided lots of needed moisture and the trees were looking as green as can be once their morning snow cloak dropped off.  

Once in awhile, Google gives me a little gift of randomly filtering one of my photos.  I quite liked the one above.
