Yes, we really got all this snow overnight and, at two in the afternoon on March 17th, it still hasn’t stopped.
I never would have thought, when I moved to Virginia (it is, technically, the south, after all) that I would have more occasion to use cross-country skis than my bicycle. Go figure! I’ll just keep waiting for spring. Meanwhile, has anyone got some snowshoes I can borrow?

- And an transplanted English gardener’s opinion on what our snowfall will do to the early blooms: Tommie crocus shocked by a St Patrick’s Day snow (beforeyougarden.com)
Will our crocuses hang in there? I’m crossing my fingers! In the meantime, with the fireplace lit and the prospect of a cup of hot chocolate, it’s beginning to feel a lot more like Christmas than St. Paddy’s Day.
Wishing you all good cheer and some Irish luck!
Until next time,
