Dear Fellow Gardeners,
The time has finally come to announce the end of winter, thank God!
Surviving another very cold, heavily snowy season, our garden plants continually amaze me as they stoically withstand whatever is thrown at them. We, along with a selection of other migratory species, have the ability to ” breakup” the winter with a change of locale and temperature. Our dear flora, unless lucky enough to grow in a pot in a warm home for the winter, have to deal directly with all of the obvious changes in our climate; from the hottest to the coldest, the most humid to the most desiccating. Oh, the pleasures of gardening in the Midwest!
