February 26th, 2013 Pre~Spring Thoughts…

“But each Spring… a gardening instinct,

sure as the sap rising in the trees, stirs within us.

~ Lewis Gantt (N.D.) excerpt from The Curious Gardener’s Almanac

 

As most are preparing for the next winter storm on Wednesday, I am grateful for the 1st delivery of plant plugs received today. Spring is just a mere 22 days away and our lil’ greenhouse here on campus is welcoming it’s 1st plants. Looking forward to sharing, not only, pictures of the Plants in Bloom here on campus, but also quotes and other inspirations.

Sincerely,

Sherri
