I am fully out in the garden today — this will be our first weekend in a while without snow… yes, Mother Nature has thrown us some curve balls.
March 25: At the end of the day we had 10″ of snow.
April 1: California has the weather and my little loves…
(It was snowing in Indiana.)
My daughter’s beautiful garden…
And, her ‘Easy Does It” rose.
April 9: NATURE’S WELCOME HOME FROM CALI
(Thankful Mr. G’s welcome was warmer!)
BACK TO TODAY…
Yes, I am out in the garden and while the heart of a gardener is optimism, I am a “bit” discouraged at some things I’m seeing. At the top of the “oh no” list is that my beautiful New Dawn rose on the arbor looks like it has some major winter kill — I mean major. If you don’t remember the one I am talking about, it’s this one…
Is it wrong to ask for prayer for a rose?😉 (Asking for a friend.)
While I would appreciate a miracle for my rose, there are so many more important things in my life and yours. Life and nature do throw us curve balls from time to time, but the Original Gardener (Genesis 2:8) has it all under control. He is very good at what He does. My life has taught me that when He closes a door, He opens a window.
AND, WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS… MAKE LEMONADE!
Here are the best lemons ever. My beautiful daughter grows these outside her kitchen door! If you want to read more about LEMONS, ROSES & SWEETNESS, click here for an article I wrote about our family’s lemon life.
Thanks for stopping by. Stay tuned, there are so many more spring things to come. Things like new roses … I have to tell you about all the new roses I am testing in the garden this year! Oh I can’t wait!

Good morning, This has been a brutal, cold, winter for sure but not much snow in central Md. I’ve lost several rose plants At Last,Maria Shriver,Summer Love. The David Austen roses came thru well as did the Antique White Wings.
Seeing your grandsons enjoying your gardens is a terrific reminder that better gardening weather is on the way.
Good luck with your New Dawn plant, Joe
I am so glad I do not need to contend with the snow that everyone else gets! It is seventy degrees now.
We live in the tropics, and I’ve seen snow once in real 🙂 . Brrr….cold those snow photos, brought back nice memories.
Glad it broughg back goid memories! Snow can be so beautiful and getting snowbound at homebound for a few days with my honey can be very special. Cheers to hot chocolate!
