Can This Really be Spring?

by Susan on April 6, 2014

It’s been a brutal winter in Michigan. We had record cold and record snowfall. Some of those cold days made me worry about my boxwood which were “thankfully” covered under layers of insulating snow.

This weekend, I am finally seeing signs of this most welcome Springtime in my garden. Here’s a few pictures I snapped with my iPhone of the early April garden.

My little collection of pebbles gathered on the shore of Lake Huron. I love arranging these little stones on my patio table.

I’m looking forward to spending many long hours in the garden this season. Welcome back Spring!
