Yesterday, I watered trees, perennials, and lawn and saw my first two bulbs pushing up. Around here you only plant the hardiest of the hardy. I get mine from High Country Gardens of Santa Fe which has the same altitude and climate as we do and specializes in tough and hardy plants for the mountain and arid west.

Good thing. This morning, it's a winter wonderland outside and snowing hard.

Welcome to early spring (late winter?) in the Rockies. March is our snowiest month - and it's wetter snow, not the stuff that you can sweep away with a broom like frozen powdered sugar.

Beautiful though.
