It’s hard to imagine that so much white could exist outside my window. It snowed all day and all night. People are wading through the snow as if in a rice paddy and not a speck of dirt is anywhere to be seen. It’s an auspicious sign for the garden as roots start to die when they get below -10 C. Every inch of snow provides extra insulation. My plants must bet sleeping soundly and will wake up refreshed and ready to bloom.
