The beginning of a new season of growth
Out of the depths of the dark garages emerge the pots of perennials that V and I enjoy all summer. She has been my guide and inspiration in growing these beautiful everlasting flowers. Each year I used to buy annuals and while they looked gorgeous, they were expensive. Now there is a real pride in nurturing the pots all summer and lovingly tucking them away in our respective garages to bring them out for another year in the sun.
Yes, it appears Spring has arrived in Minnesota. Birds and warm breezes - the sweet promise of bare feet and barbeques. Gardening is such a relaxing and rewarding pastime. It is good for the soul - being a part of nature and the changing seasons. Everything looks a bit anemic right now but just wait a week or two - green and flourishing.
