Typical of moody April, today there has been snow, rain, sun and a brutal wind. The temp is -5C. It’s April in the GTA so nobody is surprised. Today was going to be the big rake and prune day, now that the forsythia are in bloom. BUT – it is bloody cold and the wind defeats my raking.
One of the great trademarks of gardeners is patience – so be patient knowing that there are warm, still days ahead – around the corner – very soon. Your garden will always wait for you. In the meantime, get to the library and take a look at Lorna Crozier’s book The Garden Going On Without Us. It is one of my favorites.
