I knew it was going to happen. Still, it was a huge surprise to go to bed in the evening with some green leaves and the odd flower blooming and wake up in mid winter… and it’s snowing much of the day tomorrow. We still had piles of carrots and beets in the ground. My husband braved the elements and dug them out while we could still get a shovel in the ground. 🙂 three cheers! All of our lawn chairs were still, optimistically scattered around the garden and we were considering a bonfire party. I guess a part of being an Edmonton gardener is boundless optimism. Foolishness is a survival strategy.
