Blooming and Growing

 
I know I've been neglecting you blog - I'm so very sorry, but you see I LOVE to garden almost as much as I love to take pictures and that means when the snow melts up here in cold cold New Hampshire I am one BUSY  BEE!
 
I promise to tell you all about the raised beds I built this year and show you how I restored some beautiful 30 year old garden beds that had been neglected by its previous owners.  I'll tell you all about how I propagated bushes from friend's and neighbor's yards and everything else I've been up to this past month for now, but for I only have time for one quick post so I thought I'd show you what spring in New Hampshire looks like so you can see for yourself why I haven't been in front of a computer screen lately, enjoy!
