March 2010 Garden Blogger's Bloom Day and March's Fury



For more info on GBBD, see May Dreams Gardens.

The Monarch Butterflies are suffering this Winter season! For more info, please click here.

It's still chilly, foggy and raining here, as it has been for 5 days. This storm has been unlike anything we've seen here in many years. Power's out all over (thankfully we only browned out- dozens of times), trees down, homes flooded, schools closed, roof's blown off, debris everywhere, people have died... Mother Nature's fury indeed.
Beware The Ides of March this day!

That looks to be some storm. I was sort of missing the ocean, and then I saw those big rollers crashing in and thought again.

I love the picture of the vultures, they look like they are rethinking their migration plans. . .

I'm sure your garden will survive, but it certainly does look wet and bedraggled.

Thanks for visiting me.

Hi Jo, thanks for stopping by Hill Country Mysteries.

I LOVE your slide show presentation! What a great way to present your lovely pictures.

Looks like you've had a round of nasty weather. Hope spring comes soon.

Those Joy Sedum are close to my heart. Seems that New Jersey has some similar coastal conditions to San Francisco. Those are some crazy sand/wind/waves... Matti/.. also love the trad music

Thanks for stopping by everyone and for your lovely comments! It was a whopper of a storm, nothing we've seen the likes of in Many years and we've been left with a mess to clean up, but that's what we're doing slowly and thankfully the perennials and we have survived!
