north MS gardening and weather report
I really miss the activity on this forum. I know there are a ton of MS and LA gardeners out there. So I am going to plan to post messages regularly here, just little reports about what is going on. I hope others chime in. I miss it!
Today is cold and BLEAK. yeah that's the word: BLEAK. The temps here in the Tupelo area started about 29 this am and are down to about 28. It did not warm up as predicted (35 degrees would have been nice....). I had ordered a hula hoe and was anxious to try it, but just too cold and dreary for me today. Just a minute ago, my dtr brought me outside to see tiny faint little snow flurries, but it stopped.
Yesterday, I was in New Albany MS and driving home in the afternoon, it was eery and pretty to see the ice coating the bare trees and pines. It gave them a grayish white look. Ya'll I'm from SOUTH of N.O. and I've never seen that before! I wish I'd had my camera with me.
In my garden I have hellebores blooming, forsythia starting to bud out, and quinces budding very well. I do not see daffodils coming up yet. At this time of year I'm glad I have some evergreens and nandina with the pretty bright red berries. Stay warm, folks!
