Parsley Surprise

I finally finished my Fall cleanup. I know, it’s Spring. But you know how things get away from you; then the snow came and covered the evidence of my garden neglect.

Look what I uncovered – my Parsley made a comeback! I’m tickled pink. (Not sure why tickling makes you pink… or who came up with that saying…) No doubt the leaves made a blanket that then the snow encrusted. The surrounding rocks helped contain the warmth too.  True, they’re year-two parsley plants and will quickly go to seed but you betcha, I’ll keep pinching the flower stalks and try to grab some of the parsley before it goes to seed and turns bitter. Gardening can be so forgiving. Thankfully!
