Right around the Corner

The weather is warming up and the sun is shining. That can only mean one thing: Spring is on its way! The nurseries are starting to stock more flowers and vines for planting. I've had my eyes on many bulbs (elephant ears, caladiums, amaryllis, and onions), as well as other pretty flowers and tasty foods. I'm considering trying my hand at strawberries and possibly asparagus this spring.

With all these reminders of spring, Kendall and I are thinking of how to get our yards ready for planting. I think I might flip through some landscaping books and sketch an outline for our backyard. We have lots of "wants" when it comes to furniture, grills, etc., but might have to wait for an after-season sale!
