Spring Is Here?
April 15, 2013
Is spring really here? You may have asked yourself this question yesterday when you were outside in shirtsleeves and today watching a snow storm from your living room window. I know that after long, cold, and gloomy days, I am ready for sunshine and warm weather. My daffodils have been at the brink of blooming for weeks. They have been enduring the cold and snow valiantly, and finally, last week they opened up their yellow blooms. I am now optimistic that spring is really here. I am looking forward to having some pots of colorful flowers hanging from my porch. Spring is like a new beginning each year. Not only do you see the perennials that you have had for years shoot up through the ground, but you get excited about planning new flower beds with new plants.
If you are not sure what you want to plant, check out the Library for some new ideas. Check out these books: Perennial Garden Design by Michael King and Flower Gardening: Bring Home the Secrets of Great Gardens by Jessica Brinkert. Happy planting.
