Signs of Spring
Gardening is happening in earnest when the sun peaks out.
This is the season of labor. Oh, but what a reward is in store!
To see a hillside white with dogwood bloom is to know a particular ecstasy of beauty, but to walk the gray winter woods and find the buds which will resurrect that beauty in another May is to partake of continuity. ~Hal Borland
Here at Poet's Garden Girl, I (Shannon) will be posting about the random life of a shop owner, including gardening, decorating, recipes, shop news, and this crazy life. Heidi and Mom, Cheri, will join in on occasion. Feel free to visit and leave comments anytime!
