Yes, it’s spring! It certainly felt that way before last week’s freeze, but we won’t get anything remotely like that again this year. We’ve had the windows open for a few days straight. It’s lovely to have all of the fresh air. Today was my planting day. I was too busy the last couple days … Continue reading Spring Planting
