February is going out with a bang. All month it has been mild and little snow has fallen. The last week of this month is making up for it with three storms. Today we got around ten inches with more on the way tomorrow.The snow was very wet and damaged a few shrubs which will have to be cut back. There were snowdrops up in the front garden but they are now covered with snow. Speaking of bulbs I found a great source for unusual bulbs called Odyssey Bulbs in Massachusetts that specializes in minor bulbs such as corydalis and fritillaria. I also have snowdrops' in the green' coming in April from The Temple Nursery in Trumansburg New York. This small nursery grows a nice selection of these wonderful bulbs.
I am a garden designer and plant collector living in upstate New York with my wife Kathy. Last year we gave up a twenty year garden and moved to be close to our Grandson. We are starting a new adventure and new gardens. My specialty is shade plants.
