Waiting for Spring…

There’s a lot to be said for the winter garden and the aesthetic interest of perennials, grasses and seed heads covered in frost and snow.  Come March, though, I start itching to order plants and plan changes and additions.

Soon … until then, we wait.

Once upon a time…

… it all started when we moved to a small town in New Jersey.  The type of mythical place where there’s a soda fountain in the drug store, a Fourth of July parade, and lots of small and cozy post-war homes.  Our own home’s yard was begging to be cultivated, and the idea of a garden took root.  Nothing like starting with a clean slate. Thus, the fledgling garden began.
