I used to live on a house right next to a main road. When snow was deep, a snow-plough was sent out to clear the road...................by shoving the snow on to the pavement and my garden. So I had to dig my way out through a three foot high wall.

Oooooooo! How *very* pretty! You have flowers?!?!?!? We have snow then standing water and now are to get an ice storm tonight into tomorrow.
Speaking of ice .... I don't remember if I posted this here before but this blob is actually a maple tree covered with ice that formed from the spray and mist given off when the waves from Lake Erie hit the shore line cliffs. ;D
The poor thing thaws out and grows every year just to be encased in ice again each winter!

That was once of the jobs I hated at the GC. Taking the fleece off every morning in winter, from all the stands of plants. By the time it was done, we were soaked from the dew or melting frost. Then out at close of day, putting it back on, still damp. Yuck.
March is a funny month Roan. But we don't usually get snow! Certainly not this much. And it happened when Easter fell early! First Easter in living memory I haven't got out in the garden at all...............other than to take photos of course.
