It's really great to have Spring so near and see the growth of my early flowers up out of the ground. Before I know it we'll have some blooms. As of now this has been one dreary winter season. I'm very fortunate in my zone 5/6 to have my patio cover that I can still go out under during the bad weather. I had the contractor pretty much close this in without actually adding a room. It's walled on the one side and the front side is white vinyl fencing with blinds above and it keeps out the snow and rain both. Makes it ideal to keep the Yorkies under so they aren't out in the rain and snow.
Snapped a photo yesterday as I was out doing some of the leaf cleanup I leave down over the winter for plant protection. I love sitting out under there in the rain and hear it hitting the cover. I figure next week I'll be able to get down to some serious pruning for the season and be ready for enjoyment of the rest of the growing season. Happy gardening.
