It has been an unusually harsh winter this year and everyone is looking forward to Spring. There will be a lot of clean-up and spruce-up required but I am ready for my garden to enjoy new growth without the fear of bone chilling weather destroying the tender buds and leaves. There has already been a lot of pruning back of dead wood and spreading new mulch in all the beds. The fence will get a new coat of stain/preservative next week, the pool cover will be removed and the new bar-b-que will be delivered and installed, we will soon be ready for outdoor living.
