It appears that real for sure spring has finally arrived here in the midwest. It's a bit of a drab spring because the long cold snap froze our cherry and pear blossoms just as they appeared. It also zapped our rhododendron, the baby leaves on our red maple, our clematis and bleeding hearts and turned some leaves on other plants brown.
But I'm still excited to get out and work in my garden this weekend. We're going to get some veggies in the ground and just generally spruce things up.
Saturday will be a short work day and I'll need to scrub the dirt from under my nails, because we have our fancy dress-up ball to go to in support of the Bach Collegium. (Hey, if you want to come with us it's not too late!)
