Remember the Garrison Keillor quote: "March is the month God created for people who don't drink so that they would understand what hangover felt like." Some (most) years this quip describes the affect March has on the psyche of northern gardeners.
Take heart; at least the days are getting longer. By month's end we may even see a little color. (Pictured above is the dwarf Iris 'Katharine Hodgkin'.)
