Even though it snowed yesterday, covering the widening patches of bare ground we all know spring is just around the corner, or maybe just down the block. In spite what some local skiers tell me about their predictions for lots of the white stuff coming our way in March I’m very hopeful we can all get out into our yards to start the cleanup.
So when the snow finally does disappear and the bare ground makes its glorious return all the hidden things will make their appearance and we can jump in to spring cleanup.
A couple of days ago as I was out walking I was suprised to see the top of a little plastic umbrella sitting all alone under some bushes, it was orange and yellow and obviously belonged to some childs play set. I wondered where it came from and how it got there.
As the snow recedes we will find not only missing things but also items under the grill or sitting in the crook of a branch that we have never seen before and we’ll wonder, where did these come from. I think it is the snow leprechauns who randomly leave things just before the first big snow, they leave them so we will be confounded in the spring and they can all get a good laugh. Get your trash bags and rakes ready, the bareness of spring is just around the corner.
If you are itchy to get started with plantings and landscaping and you don’t want to wait for the snow to disappear drop on over and see us and we can give you a brochure or two along with a few ideas of projects you might undertake this spring. Did I hear someone say its time to install a gardening shed?
