Bittersweet, you are right behind me with the gardening. I would be frustrated waiting for snow to melt.
It is in the 80's today and beautiful, breezy and bright so I went outside to see what I could do.
I trimmed dead twigs off all the foundation plantings across the front of the house / porch. Then I weeded whole area, raked it all up including partway out into the grass. I fertilized then dragged hose around, washed off front of house and 1 windowsill, washed off the curbing and watered all the plants.
They are sorry looking. Just a few twigs to each. I left anything that looked remotely green. I'm hoping they perk up and start budding and growing. A couple look so bad with no green remaining I'm afraid I'll have to replace.
On the good side, my island in the front has about 50 opened amarylis now and about 25 buds which will each make about 4 flower heads. (My gift of bulbs from Sunny 2 years ago). They are beautiful bobbing in the breeze. I still need to weed that bed.
