Buying spring

OK, it's not funny any more. We had snow again last night and spring seems as far away as ever.

But I get to buy spring -- that is, I buy flowers and plant spring container gardens for a couple of our clients. So here's what I found today: hydrangeas, osteospermum, and stock. I've already purchased pansies, dwarf daffodils, and grape hyacinth. And now my cold back room looks like spring. Cheery!

April showers

After a day of snow and then lots of rain,

the garden looks a bit chilly . . . . and quite soggy.

But spring is here.

I'm glad.
