When I come home at night from my "real" job, and after being greeted and almost knocked down but two rambunctious labs, I get the daily updates. Today was ..."we got a lot planted today" "we were soooo busy". Those are good words to hear after what seemed to be a too long winter. James started the water falls a few days ago and it is a refreshing and comforting sound as I walk the dogs at midnight. The crocus are starting to push through the soil as are the daffodils so I know spring REALLY is just around the corner.
Douglas and James are almost through setting up benches in the greenhouses and pulling all those miscellaneous weeds they just seem to pop up. We've received our first shipment of plugs. Geraniums, petunias, lavender and other herbs, spikes and vincas, begonias and impatiens to name a few. Now the fun begins -- planting them all.
