April 2021 after the snow; seedlings and herb bed

It wasn’t much of a snow and it didn’t sit on the ground long, but it made the tulips look sad for a while. I think it probably put an end to my apricot dreams. The hyacinth don’t seem to care at all.

The bleeding heart looks a bit withered and tired out by the snow. This plant comes out so early that it often has trouble; I also ought to have covered it and didn’t.

The seedlings in the house don’t care about the snow and they are coming on. Some are flowers, some veg, and some basil.

The herb bed outside looks terrible and abandoned, but in the midst of all of it there are lovely signs.

The tarragon is coming (above) and so is the mint (below). I hope to spend some time over the weekend cleaning up this bed.

The peonies and the hostas seem none the worse for having had a bit of snow.
