So…what about no snow in MN? We gardeners think we need lots of snow for spring plants to prosper…however, the run-off from the snow is actually more of a flood danger rather than helping with the moisture level. The ground is frozen and will accept very little of the water as it runs along its path. What gardeners will be praying for is an early spring rain…Now is the time to go out and do some of that winter pruning of trees and shrubs. You can see where the limbs are crossed and where the branches are too close together…trees needs to have some space for the air to whistle through and that also helps the undergrowth. The health of your trees depends upon you. It is easier to care for trees than to take an old one down and wait for the time for it to grow up into a healthy addition to your landscape.

Snow, rain, ice on the trees…beautiful pictures…no electricity so time to watch the birds and other life; including Sugar Bear enjoy this MN morning. Be safe on sidewalks and side streets and in dark houses…

Winter Interest…enjoy the sculptural presence and bark of the trees. See the red berries still untouched due to the unseasonal warm weather…be still and know that spring is coming.
