Spring is such a wonderful time when nature seems to awake from her long nap. As the cold winter’s ice begins to melt, the animals waking up from their sleep, the birds chirping, butterflies in their array of colors take to the sky

as the bees move about from plant to plant all this spells spring and let us know that it is time to pull out those garden gloves and tools as we are once again in our gardens connecting with and giving nature a helping hand.

what I love about working in the great outdoors is getting that much needed exercise in such a peaceful and relax way and watching as my garden begins to bloom and flourish in an array of colors that is just mind blowing which says to me, you have done a great job and nature has given you her seal of approval.
