Last year on April 30th I made this post. Today on April 25 I make the same post.
Pussy toes does it again, 5 days earlier then last year. The Pasque flower is right with it. Hilarious!

Not fully open, but rains coming tonight, and 1 to 2 inches of snow coming on Sat. That should be interesting.

They changed the prediction from 1 to 2 inches to 2 to 4 inches! Glare and we now have a snow advisory! Followed by several colder wet rainy days, I can see the rot coming. Crying I have several of the littles with "baby bumps" now.

Snow in late April? Blinking I hope it doesn't harm the Spring growth and buds in your garden.

Well that snow sure is bad news. Hope your iris survive without too much frost damage.

Friend in Michigan got the same news today, what a way to spend the weekend, worrying about plants. So sorry! We had cold spring the 2017 and 18. This year was the 1st time I have seen most of my little ones in 3 years and I had missed them. I hope yours survive, but hard to imagine. Maybe it depends more on the temps than the snow?
