Lately, watering the garden has moved to a whole new level at my house. You see my daughter, who just turned two, is in the “I can do it by myself, Mommy!” stage. She wants to own and control the garden hose.
This week, I received a call from my next door neighbor, Marilyn. She was at the grocery store and they had just unloaded a fine selection of Japanese maples (I find it amazing you can buy trees at almost any grocery store during spring).
Last fall, my daughters and I carefully planted tulips, daffodils and hyacinth bulbs in our landscape beds. This week the bulbs announced their presence by coloring our dull yard with splendid color. A display of color that winter cannot provide.
