I worry that

Nothing will grow back in my garden after so much cold weather!

    At least you can see where you have things that might come back. Mine are totally lost! If they really do decide not to grow, you can always plant more lolly sticks!! They look very colourful.

      I got different coloured sticks to mark different coloured bulbs – these are the alliums!

  2. Don’t despair. Plants are often more tough than we think. I always say that they can’t read. Hang in there. jodi (zone 5, land of ice and snow, Nova Scotia)

    • Jodi – thanks for your comment, if anyone should know about plants surviving the cold it is you …. its just I had one or two Mediterranean types, because normally we are so sheltered here at the coast

  3. Me too but on the whole plants are tougher customers than us 🙂

    • So true Anna – this month I am beginning to suspect that I am turning into a fair weather gardener 😉

  4. I am trying to think of the snow as a large cosy duvet. It will be interesting to see which plants pop up after the snow has gone….and which don’t!

    • lol – so you haven’t gone into hibernation then easygardener?

      Yes it will be an interesting spring, we had a slight thaw of the ice to-day and the hellebores look so woe begotten

  5. I hope all will rise again. Your plants have an amazing will to live. I read that you are having the coldest winter ever! Yikes. I can understand your worry.

    • Yes Carol, that is the root of my worry – I had not really replanted for Arctic conditions (lol)
      Thanks for dropping in here 🙂

    Damn, I had forgotten about my hellebores, (probably as I can’t see them), and they were doing so well. Loads of buds. Legs crossed as well as fingers.

      Well, not too long until the big thaw (fingers crossed)

    Actually, if you have snow it is better. I lose more plants when we have bare ground winters.

    • Yes, I can understand how the snow can be a bit protective – but we seem to have so much ice 😦
