Could it be…winter is loosening it’s grip :o)

For the first time in months there is more ground than snow!  Ben and Devy went out for a long walk with me and didn’t come home covered with mud and snow melt…..woof!

The new 6 week session has begun and even though the buds are still tight the Pussy Willows and Witch Hazel have begun their early show!

A new show “Weird, Wild and Wonderful” will open at the New York Botanical Garden on April 17th – September 27th  go to the following link for more information:

Winter…it is time to go…..

The early Spring session begins next week…hoping that winter releases it’s icy grip soon.  The bulbs will begin to peek through the frozen ground.  The skunk cabbage will thaw the forest floor….the snowdrops, daffy-dillies and and tulips will soon be here.  I do love the winter but this winter has tested us all…we all are looking forward to the warm sunshine of Spring!  :O)
