Have you seen the new wash of color on the willows and red maples on the roadside as well as on distant hills? Have you heard the increasing chatter of the birds & chitter of the squirrels? Have you seen the hawks wheeling above the treetops?
The picture above, taken in Paul Young's marvelous Bethel garden, shows the glow of late-winter color on redtwig dogwood and pondside willow. The wood duck house awaits new inhabitants.
Spring is Coming!
Witch hazel is in bloom, snowdrops are ready to burst forth at the first sign of sun, and days are appreciably longer. Sugaring is in full force, so 'tis time to plant seeds, assemble the garden tools, lay in a supply of potting soil and fertilizer. Once again Mother Nature is sounding her siren song.
It's time to listen.
