We had quite the winter here in Nova Scotia, I haven't seen anything like it in all my 50+ years living here. The snow storms were relentless, we didn't really have a good thaw and it just kept piling up, snow, freezing rain, snow on and on. We began to worry about our gardens. We have a lot of shrubs and small bushes that were buried and bent over with the weight of the snow. Once it had all melted we saw lots of damage with broken branches and pretty sad looking plants.
Somehow Mother Nature was watching over us and the garden is in bloom, I think even more so than last year. We are expecting rain at times heavy tonight so I got out to take a few pictures before the rain. I hope the forecast is wrong and the blooms will be around for a while.
