Yep, traditional last day of frost is May 30 or 31, something like... People always try to jump the gun and plant mid-May--and then we get another frost and they have to do it all over again.
hazel is too paranoid to fall for that, so she just waits till Memorial Day weekend to plant.

Yep, sorry to say... Luckily, my thumb is the only place it's showed up!
We have moss, too--yesterday's rain uncovered a lot of it and it's lookin' mighty fine covered in water and feeling hydrated.
Today, we woke up to thunder snow, so it's rapidly being covered over again
We could get 6 -12 inches (15 - 30 cm) of snow, but I'm thinking the weather-guessers are wrong and we'll end up wit less. Whatever we get will melt quickly. It always does in March.
