What a difference a little sunshine makes…
Last week our sedums (or Live Forever plants, left) were blanketed by snow, and our bulbs were just poking through.
Today the snow is gone; greenery is really shooting up, and it’s time to do some pruning & raking.
Hooray for Spring!
But, before we push forward to the new season, let’s pause a minute to look back at the year gone by.
