Happy Shamrocks !

It seems so early this year - Spring - but I do recall this is not the first time!

Perhaps foolishly - I have been keeping a garden journal for 25 years - and so this thought prompted me to go back and review the whole thing.

Saint Patrick's Day 1995 was indeed very very mild - over 20 degrees - and the garden was advancing.

I kept delaying the spring clean-up thinking this will never last - and best to leave the winter's debris as insulation

but the garden had a mind of its own !

Eventually - I gave in and believed that it really was Spring - and got out there to rescue all the tender perennials - struggling under the mulch !
