Yes - we actually had some snow on the weekend - it was utterly
depressing to see my tulips getting smashed by the torrential rains.
And, this year we had more lilac on our old lilac tree than ever before -
it was stunning. But that too was pelted with buckets of rain. Sigh.
But today the sun is out, and all is very green, very moist, but the
grass and weeds, very high.
Saved a small crab-apple one winter, from a neighbor's tree. Winter-sowed the seeds within. In spring, one germinated, and grew over the years. 6 years later I finally have blooms.
