Inspirational Spring

As a gardener and one who makes her living with flowers, Spring is my favorite time of year.  The promise of another gardening season filled with a riot of color, fragrance and work!  Yes, it's true, I look forward to the work as much as I look forward to reaping the rewards.  It's very soul satisfying when you uncover a bunch of bouquets you're delivering and the Mother of the Bride quickly and loudly takes a breath in surprise and delight, and starts to tear up a little (true story, happened this weekend).  It's just as satisfying, but in a more earthy all-about-me way when I can sit with a beverage after that delivery, in my garden, and appreciate a job well done (while noticing the edging, weeding, and planting that still has to happen).  Spring is a time of promise, when the entire wedding and gardening year is before you, and you just know it's going to be a great year!

Here's some of the work we've already accomplished this year, starting early in February, when the hellebores were just starting to bloom.....
