A Note from Jenny
Spring in Minnesota tends to be pretty ugly—snowy and dirty and brown—but the moment the plants pop out of the earth gives me joy. When they finally blossom, that’s when winter is done! I made this page, when it’s below zero at the end of February, to nurture that joy.

March Fun Fact
The last two years it has snowed in May. I know it’s not a fun fact, but as a gardener, I have to say I do not plant perennials that are so dainty they have to be nurtured through the winter. These flowers on the page are hearty and survive late snows, which makes me shake my fist in the air and say, “Take that, Winter!”
