If April showers bring May flowers what do April snows bring? Frustration, cabin fever, another peruse of the seed catalogues and maybe another revision of the garden plan for this year? Keep the faith. Although we may just skip spring this year and go right into summer, warmer weather will come and when it does expect a burst of green and other colors. One of the first things to pop in my landscape, besides the early bulbs and ephemerals is my rhododendron. The buds have been set since last fall and all we need is a little bit of sun and warmth for them to burst open into a bouquet of lavender pink flowers.
