My herb garden was buried in snow just the other day. Snow can be a great insulator to protect those borderline herbs that may not make it in very cold temperatures.  Everything has to be just right for it to happen!

Now that the snow is almost gone, I will be happy with what is living at the moment in the herb garden. I discovered this feverfew in the sticks and twigs that looked as if it could start growing immediately.
