|Sad, but true, this is actually a garden.|
Currently, our landscape around here consists of drab brown, gray, and dull army green. Leafless branches on the trees add to the dreary rather than cheery surroundings. At least the patches of white snow nestled among the dried leaves is somewhat of a pick-me-up.
Welcome to Spring in upstate New York. I know it won't be long before the sun and the rich soil weaves it's magic, producing a bountiful garden of flowers. It's time for me to help those future posies along with ample bushel baskets of horse pucky. My neighbors usually complain about the odor for at least a month, even after mulching, but they are rewarded with bouquets of homegrown flowers through the spring and summer months.
Happy first day of Spring!
