One Step Closer to Spring?

I've noticed on my phone that next week's weather forecast seems a bit on the cold side at night.

There has been talk of drought in Oregon this year due to all the dry weather we've had and the lack of snow in the mountains. The rains the past few days will help a little.

Signs of spring are popping up everywhere, but it still feels like Mother Nature hasn't given us all of our winter yet in Portland. I'm still expecting a spring snowfall in February to mess things up.

A flower bud on a tree peony clearly visible!

 Until then, I'm going to enjoy the flowers...


  1. We must take what we can get when we can get it.

  2. It IS so cold out there. Brrrr.

  3. Oh dear! I hope that this cold front doesn't knock your garden back. Brr…
