I got myself an early birthday present! I'm so excited about gardening this year! I spent a large part of the day Wednesday outside cutting and cleaning up the yard and getting it ready for planting. Then after uncovering the new leaves of my perennials to the warm spring sunshine, I woke up Thursday morning to the world covered in 2 inches of snow. So depressing... well today is sunny so there is hope that it will all melt today.
