Don’t let this snow fool you, spring officially begins at 6:45 today. The day will be as long as the night (vernal equinox) and from now until the first day of summer, we will have more hours of sunlight than darkness. I looked for signs of spring around the garden today before the snow began to fall, but I came back in to enjoy forced the blooms of witch hazel. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Watch for this native tree to show off it’s plumage as the weather starts to warm. In the mean time, visit your local garden center for that spring feeling. They’ve got lots of color to brighten even the whitest of days!
