But did any of my plants actually read the weather forecast for this week? It’s supposed to be freezing rain or snow on Tuesday and down to the teens. And yet my hydrangea, and some of my bulbs are sprouting!

I can’t help but be thrilled to see them, and will just have to give the hydrangea a bit of protection on Tuesday.

Also, thinned my wee seedlings. Not great germination on the Basil ‘Siam Queen’ but should still give me all the plants I need and can give away!
