This makes me ANTSY to get started outside in the yard! A little "news flash", though...........Cher.........this article says it's "Memorial Day Weekend"...........not for two months, it's not! It's March 16th and where I live, it's still WINTER and cold...........42 degrees outside.

Thanks for posting this article which was a good read. We have had over a foot of snow in the last three days, so it is going to give me lots of time to plan yet.
Thanks Cher.

Gardening is a serene and tranquil time for the most part. There is nothing more satisfying than watching the progress of the plants and flowers. Will be glad when the snow melts and once again green life can sustain itself outside...aside from the pine trees.

Dale, here there's no snow, just constant RAIN, and the rain is actually GOOD in a way to keep the pollen count down. Alders are dropping these grape clusters of yellowish-green stringey pollen heads EVERYWHERE. My SILVER Honda Accord is now yellow and the garbage cans are ALL yellow. My driveway looks like it's yellow crushed rock...........seriously.........same color as what's in your avatar! At least the stuff washes off with Simple Green but for the next month, a waste of time.
