Tina,

I feel your pain. I've got just the beginning signs of spring in my garden and now the poor things are going to get frozen! When will old man winter leave us alone?

Stay Warm!

I went back to Blotanical with the idea of giving this post a "Pick" but I couldn't find your blog there. I thought that you were a Blotanical member. Was I mistaken? (Not that it would surprise me~LOL) If you're not a member you might want to check it out. You'll find lots of other gardeners to be jealous of, create friendships with, and to commiserate with. Just a thought.

robinscabin,
Thanks for stopping in!
Thanks so much for the thought, but I'm not a member of Blotanical, for my own personal, stubborn reasons. I hit on why in this post. Although, Oldroses said it much better in her comment to that post (and even better than that on her own blog on January 1st) than I did in the actual post, I think. lol.
