Clematis 'Rouge Cardinal'

It most likely wilt,but hopefully you planted it deep.I have had clematis is that have had this but have come back and started shooting growth again because I had planted them deeper.The ones I didn't died and didn't re-grow from base.dont give up on it just wait and see.

cutting grass while its snowing

no,not unless you want a messy lawn,leave well alone until its dried out and if you are doing electrically  the combination of wet and electric don't mix.Its best to leave it to a dry day when the soil is dried out,tempting as it may be.

what do u think this might be

plant bamboo with care,it can take over and be hard to eradicate if you get fed up with it.If you should want to buy one buy the small variety .

well,summer bedding plants for a bright display if and when the sun comes out,spring fill with primulas or all manner of plants its a personnel thing.if you go to a good garden center you will see plants that might inspire you.That's the best i can say as it is what you like that counts.
