Christmas Cactus blooming in March!

The Christmas Cactus isn't an edible part of my garden but it is a nice addition to anyone's indoor garden! This is especially true because it blooms beautiful pink flowers in late fall and Christmas time, hence the name, right when you need a burst of color in the browning landscape of winter.

Normally my Christmas Cactus blooms in November and December. So I was surprised to see a bloom today in March!!

Blueberry Bushes out of the shed!

Back in late January before a cold snap, where temps dropped close to zero, I put my blueberry bushes, blackberry bush and rosemary plant in the shed to be protected. Well it turned out to be a great decision because not only did we get the cold but we got a blizzard with 30 inches of snow in one night!!! What a crazy winter it's been! Now that spring is less than 2 weeks away I figured I should bring the plants out to get some sun and water (when it rains tomorrow). So here's what the plants look like now, hopefully they bloom this spring!

More Snow! Will winter ever end!!

Another snowstorm and more damage to my vegetable garden! One side of my chicken wire fence has fallen over. However it's making a cool effect during this wet snowstorm on 3/8/13. It looks like a little snow wave! I keep reminding myself that spring is only two weeks away and planting season is two months away!!!! After this crazy winter I can't wait to get out in the garden!
