Easter in the Snow

Yes, there is still plenty of snow this year around my home in Quebec City, Canada, even at Easter. These photos, taken the day before Easter, that is, April 20, 2019, gives you an idea of the situation. 

Don’t cry for me, though: the snow is melting and over the last three days, some patches of bare ground have appeared and soon little spring bulbs will be bursting into bloom. 

It may seem hard to believe, but there will be a summer here … one of these days!


Garden writer and blogger, author of 65 gardening books, lecturer and communicator, the Laidback Gardener, Larry Hodgson, passed away in October 2022. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Thanks to his son, Mathieu Hodgson, and a team of contributors, will continue its mission of demystifying gardening and making it more accessible to all.

  1. It?s difficult to find experienced people in this particular
    topic, however, you seem like you know what you?re talking about!

  2. Oh my! That explains your other article ‘Keeping Easter Plants Happy’. I mean, potted plants must be nice inside with all this snow outside! That is just wrong.
