|Trying to Bud
There are many frustrating times in the garden, but this is perhaps the most testing in my area. The snow has melted, but in the course of its melt, refreeze and remelt, the ground is so saturated with water it looks like it will never dry out. Rhizomes succumbed to frost heave and have to be tamped back in. Many of them look so sad that one's hope in their recovery is weak.

Despite liberal applications of "Liquid Fence" two weeks ago the deer and/or rabbits were not deterred on these tulips.
The rhizomes that Jim and I potted look pathetic, but alive!
The tools of the day: Besides a foot to reinsert rhizomes, these will help clear leaves before the foliage buries them from view.
