If you are anything like me you are very excited spring has finally sprung! For me spring is all about new beginnings. The snow melts away relieving a fresh start for all the plants and animals. On my drive into the office today there were signs of spring everywhere. These was an adorable little colt frolicking in the field. Weeping willows and a few flowering trees in full bloom! Even our fields are transitioning from brown to green with fresh grass. I can’t seem to help a smile emerging with every sign of spring I see. Soon everything will be bursting with color and it will be warm enough to transplant all my seedlings out into the garden! Until then I will enjoy the unveiling of spring from my windows, prep my garden beds and continue my seed starting indoors.
Last week I asked: What are you most looking forward to about spring? Everyone had such terrific answers- here are just a few.
Cheryl Deutschman says: Digging into the dirt like a little kid and creating my happy place outside – my garden!!!!! :O)
Diane Kinnally says: Spring time means daffodils and tulips. It reminds me of my grandmother who was my inspiration to the world of gardening. Everything in nature was an opportunity to teach us something. She was a kindergarden teacher, a girlscout leader, but most importantly my grandmother.
