I have enjoyed your pictorial preview of springtime.
Several of those are in my garden,but buried under snow still.
Thanks for the view of what is to come!

I'm so glad you have enjoyed the pictures. We hardly got any snow this year, unlike what seems like the rest of the continent, so I am now worried about winter desiccation. I kind of wish we had a blanket to keep the plants warm from the freakish cold we had this winter. I know you are sick of the snow, though! We're just about in the home stretch...!

The snow is melting and I have two tiny crocus flowers sprouting in a very sunny spot.

Isn't that a nice sight during this month? My crocus didn't seem to last long this year...but they were beautiful while they lasted. The trees have finally budded - I'm worried about a late frost that might nip them. What can you do though...:)

Calgary has a touch of spring this weekend as the weather has warmed some, and also Calgary Hort. Society held
the Garden Show. I volunteered so I did not get to all of the exhibits, but there were lots of interesting gardening ideas there. After my shift, I attended two speakers presentations.
One was "Contain your Enthusiasm" on ideas for containers and gardens in general.
The other was " 36 Perky Perennials" which focussed on plants which do well in our zone.

Sounds very interesting! I wish they had something like that locally here.

It is nice to have a strong and active local Gardening group.
Calgary Horticultural Society has over 5000 members.
In zone 3, where gardening is a challenge---it is very helpful.
