Is It Over?


Is it over yet?  Easter?  Winter?  Are we done?

Can we plant the tender things or will it freeze at night again?

Are the jelly beans gone?  All of them?

Are we ready to plant yet?

  1. Excellent question. We're under a freeze warning tonight and I'm trying not to be a crybaby about it.

    1. Sweetbay, go ahead and cry. It's so frustrating.

  2. Not yet! I woke to a temperature of 27 degrees this morning. I have to go and uncover a couple of plants I put blankets on last night. I hope they did okay, but the tulips are drooping.

    On the brighter side, there are still some chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs left:)

    1. Rose, how is it that you have left over Easter candy? Unbelievable.

  3. I felt like this bunny looks last night when I brought in my houseplants that had been outside for a month already. I am glad I did so because there was quite a bit of frost on the ground this a.m. The weather is so fickle this year. Maybe after tonight we will have a true spring and summer will wait it's turn to arrive.

    1. Lisa, keep hoping. Your weather is our weather in the east a few days later, so don't send us any more freezes!

  4. The bunny is too cute.

    I'm not planting until I'm "suppose to." Too iffy our weather.

    1. Darla, you're killing me. A month to go here for reliable frost free nights. North Florida indeed, you lucky gardener.

  6. I don't know about you but it's been such a tease here. 12 degrees today and dropping to 2 tomorrow with slushy rain forecast. No planting yet and the jelly beans are all gone here :(

    1. Marguerite, Spring is so unpredictable. But when it all settles down it is glorious and worth the wait. Jelly beans are completely predictable, they disappear at a known and easily forecasted rate.

  7. Ah, screw the weather!! I've been planting perennials and have kept my tender annuals inside under lamps. It's been near freezing every night this week. What we really need is lots of rain. We're really dry. Plus, you can always buy more jelly beans! :o)

    1. Tammy, We really need lots of rain up here too. And lots more jelly beans. But mostly rain.
