Good morning, everyone. The weather people noted earlier today that this winter marks the fourth consecutive winter with snow totals over 50 inches. That is a record. Our normal seasonal snow fall--about 25 inches. I, for one, am very tired of winter and really, really, really want spring. I am tired of seeing my garden containers covered in a minor mountain of snow. Oh, well, I can continue anticipating warmer weather. Several of the bloggers I check in with occasionally are already planting their seeds inside. I will start some of mine next weekend. The ground cherry first because it has a very long germination time--about 35 days according to the info I have found. Then around March 1 that will be followed by the tomatoes and peppers.

For something a bit different take a trip to Jasmine Tea and Jaozi for some pictures to the annual ice festival in Harbin, China.
