Gardening in the Kootenays

It is very strange that in our little neck of the wood, Rossland can have a foot of snow, Fruitvale snow on the hillsides, Trail bare and in my little "mini-climate" I was out working in the garden today. Mind you, I was cleaning up, but still had sunflowers to pick for the birds, bulbs to plant, and garden to till (okay, Richard does that for me). I love it! Nothing feels better than being in your yard, big or small, and enjoying your home. It is my wish for everyone.
