Snowy Garden Update

My parents are visiting, so we didn't get out for a hike this week. I did get a couple of cold bike rides in.  We also got a lot of work done in the garden.  Saturday was a lot like spring, but today I awoke to snow - more snow than we've had here in a couple of years.  The plants seem mostly unscathed at this point, but I guess spring will have to wait at least a few more days.

Pictures (click to enlarge):

 Daffodils blooming in the back yard.
Dwarf Irises just starting to come up.
 Radishes in the cold frame.  These have doubled in size over the last week.
The spinach in the cold frame is starting to look like spinach.
 Lavender in the herb bed.  These were starts.
 We took advantage of my parents' truck to get paving stones for a patio. Here, Michael is training for another season of carrying things on Old Rag.
 This morning, the daffodils were covered in snow.
 Broccoli sprouts in the snow.
 A mourning dove scavenging under the bird feeder.
