Long and cold winter had me going crazy just waiting for spring’s arrival. Here’s some photos of last year’s early gardening efforts and some newly planted gems I got last weekend.

I got my love of gardening from my mom. I remember as a child, my mom received mail order gardening cards – imagine a box of full-color index cards with info about plants, flowers, trees and bushes. I’d spend hours going through them sharing with her which ones were my faves. She used to have a greenhouse and that thing was awesome. My mom found pride in her yard and I’m happy to feel the same way about mine. Happy homeowner!
