Good morning, and happy spring! I say that because our two feet of snow finally melted, and as I walk around my yard, I can see signs of life, everywhere–including my first hellebore I planted last November– in the dark!! I have to admit that this year has been a little more difficult to focus … More Let’s Cut to the Chase –Spring has Sprung!
As I write this, it is snowing outside. We have measurable snow on the ground. The first time since December. Talk about a big let down– it has been a rainy, windy, warm winter for the most part, with a Lake Effect snow blast once in a while. My daffodils are coming up, and now … More Don’t “Weight” to Get in Shape for Gardening

I actually went “shelling” this past week. Raining one day, lake effect snow the next. Just a typical winter in Buffalo! Enjoy.
It’s hard to believe this is the last day of 2016. What a year! Here’s hoping we have a more peaceful, content 2017. I want to thank all of my readers for sticking with me through this year.

Happy Winter Solstice, everyone! Enjoy.
