As sun and warmth returns this weekend, keep watch on hillsides and sunny areas for the first sign of early spring bulbs, such as Snowdrops. These small white flowers will start to emerge anytime now, giving a breath of freshness as we come out of a dreery winter.
This weekend looks like a beautiful time to just get out get an early start on garden and lawn cleaning. Simple garden tasks, such as cleaning out any weeds and debris in your beds, that were ignored last fall, will get you in that 'spring mode'.
If that doesn't seem appealing, just take a nice walk and enjoy the sun. As you're strolling, take time to look at other landscape beds in your neighborhood. You might just find a small idea that you can 'borrow' and use in your yard this year.
Enjoy the outdoors. It's an extension of your living space.
