Weeds in late winter gardens

These two 60-degree days between the cold blasts have worked wonders for those of us who need sunshine for a feeling of well-being.

Yesterday, I pulled all the tiny weeds out from among the emerging poppies and daffodils in a 20-foot long bed out by the compost bins. To sit in the sun on a beautiful, warm day, rescuing tiny plants took my attention away from the ice storm damage all around.

Gardening is therapeutic in its ability to make everything else seem unimportant, no matter which plants survive Mother Nature's many and varied moods.
