Spring, glorious spring! Is there a more wonderful season? Everything’s coming up fresh and new in the garden. The yard is a live with vibrant colour after a long, cold winter, and the spring-time temperatures are rising daily. I LOVE spring because it means more outdoor time, butterflies, birds, bugs, flowers and spring showers.
