This is a test.
Depending upon how you view these pictures, you are a gardener or not.
Do you think:
a) “What a mucky mess; glad it’s still crisp enough* that I don’t have to go out there and clean up quite yet.” ( )
b) Whatever. Glad the snow is gone! ( )
c) Boo hoo. No more skiing… ( )
d) HALLELUJAH! Snowdrops or Galanthus nivalis! ( √ )
…and other sure signs of life!
So, are you a gardener? Or like me, a gardener who clearly didn’t tidy up last fall!
* Of course, there was nothing ‘crisp’ about the day today. It was an astounding 24 degrees Celsius, which is a record by leaps and bounds since 1939, when the last highest temperature that was recorded reached 16.1 in 1966! And this whole week is supposed to have temperatures north of 20 … is it really March?
