Today it is snowing, ever so lightly, but it IS snowing. Just enough to let us know that it's too early to get out there and grow something. We're probably the last "zone" to get going, but when we do, it's shovels ready, and lawn mowers buzzing at the crack of dawn.
To amuse myself, or torture myself, yesterday I dragged my daughter, and husband to "Plantasia" a garden show, at an agricultural center.
Garden nurseries, landscapers, and textured concrete vendors displayed there wares, for the garden starved shoppers. A chance to ask a few questions about their dream plans, and pick up a few garden gadgets and trinkets. My daughter scooped up a ceder trellis, and three ceder plant containers, at a very reasonable price.
