As the days grow longer and balmier, my garden is beginning to awaken. Bulb shoots are poking through the soil, the Forsythia, Bradford Pear and Pieris Japonica buds are completely swollen, and weed seedlings have already emerged. I know that everything will happen so fast over the next 4-6 weeks, and so I want to be prepared. This year I'll be breaking ground to create a Mailbox Butterfly Garden, which really excites me, and I've also got big plans to define and design the backyard border as a Hosta Garden. My third season of gardening on this property is about to begin anew again, and I can't wait to get started.
