Woke up to snow this morning, just a dusting that was soon gone. The ground is warm enough so it didn't stick really. The temps were above freezing anyhow. I doubt it hurt much in the way of plants.
The maples are flowering as of Sunday, my elderberries were also showing buds. I have one unnamed one that i got a year before the Nova and York that seems to die to the ground each year... not sure if i will keep it if that is the way things are going to be. It takes longer to start than the others; barely berried last year and had tiny fruit. I don't want to kill it, but if its not going to produce it won't be part of my landscape. I don't have enough room to waste.
