Seasons Turn: Hope Springs Eternal!

Frost killed all my tender veggies and flowers three weeks ago but look what I spotted Sunday growing in a patch of mint. A single solitary volunteer morning glory! 

Oh, I've been missing my zinnias and marigolds and dreading the winter but this beautiful blossom is a reminder that hope springs eternal--- Spring will be here before we know it!

Also spotted this little baby lettuce-- another volunteer.  If I cover it with straw during freezes, do you think it might survive?

    Robin: doesn't it though! I've actually had mint find a way into the house though a window frame-- I called it my mint monster!
