Boulder Getting Weather-Bombed Again
This is a photo I took of the perennial bed along the east-facing fence in our backyard at roughly 5:30 p.m. yesterday (MDT):
This is a photo I took of that same spot minutes ago:
I covered the peonies and cut and brought in the cream-colored tulips (they were in their prime).
Three to six more inches are expected tonight.
Fingers crossed that those black plastic covers don’t collapse and that the peony buds survive.
As you can see, the trees have budded out so fingers crossed in terms of branches breaking.
It is so hard being a gardener — much less a plant! — here in Boulder.
