It has been a lovely warm sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest. We have not had a seriously cold winter (yet) and at least in Olympia there hasn't been any snow. I went out to look at the gardens and was surprised to find some bulbs peaking up their heads. Of course I also noticed the amount of garden cleaning that is ahead of me this year. It is still too early to disturb things as we often have cold weather in February and early March. I would hate to pull back the blankets and have little plants get cold. Here is a visit to my garden.
