The forecasters have predicted all week about spring-like temperatures this weekend. So when Saturday morning arrived, I jumped out of bed like a kid eager to hear news that school was closed for a snow day. I know mild January temperatures are out of the ordinary — unless this is the new ordinary — but I had big plans for this weekend, even if it was just some basic tidying up of fallen twigs and leaves.
Imagine my surprise, though, when I looked outside and saw nothing but gray and wet. I don’t know if the forecasters neglected to mention rain with the spring-like temps or if I just stopped listening to the forecast when I heard spring.
In any event, I decided to make the best of it — because when life gives you rain on your garden, grab a camera and take some pictures.
Margaret Roach Week Is Coming!
Margaret Roach, the creator of the immensely popular gardening blog, A Way To Garden, is celebrating the release of her newest book, The Backyard Parables, with a “blog tour.”
Nitty Gritty Dirt Man will be one of the “stops” on the tour, and in honor of the event, January 20 will begin a series of posts about Margaret, including an exclusive Q&A and a book giveaway.
I hope you’ll be able to join Margaret and me for an exciting week.
