With the danger of frost behind us now, it’s garden time! The hard part now is deciding what to plant. One thing that we love about gardening is that you can have your flowers and VEGGIES, too! Everyone is doing it now. Mixing it up in their borders and containers…Planting herbs, spinach, strawberries and more, right in with the flowers we love! Gardening has no rules, so plant what you love, and HAVE FUN!
As we sit here watching the snow fall and blanket the newly exposed ground, it is painful. These late Winter snows only delay our journey to connect once again with nature. W e ache to explore, to see what has survived and what has thrived. We long to make sense of what is and plan our masterpiece from what remains. Patience is being practiced and the joy we will feel when we finally get out into the garden will only be sweeter when we finally get there. Nature is our teacher and she teaches us appreciation in every season of the year. Dormant shrubs and trees and berries will be delivered next week, snow or no snow. We know that Spring is coming. We are certain of that. We will just have to be patient!

People use the term “Pansy” when describing someone wimpy and weak…This strikes me funny because Pansies are the most durable flowers I have ever seen! Yesterday morning I came in after a night time low of 26 degrees and found them frozen solid! After they thawed in the sun as the day warmed, they looked as good as ever! Pansies are not at all wimpy! They are the strongest little workhorses I have ever seen…They take a beating and keep on smiling with their cute little FACES! If you want color NOW, in early Spring when it is still freezing at night, Pansies are your best bet!
