Well, another Tax Day come and gone. . . the buggers got their pound of flesh for another year.We need to go to a National Sales Tax, but that is an issue for another day. Time for more pleasant things. . . April is almost gone, and things at the Nursery are alive and well. How is your veggie garden coming along? There is nothing like seeing those seeds you planted come to life, grow, and then reward you with fresh HEALTHY produce. I will be posting pictures in the future of the garden(s) and if anyone sends me some pics, I will post them also.Gardening and yard work is a great way to get some exercise, Vitamin D, and fresh food- why wouldn't everyone want to do it? The wegelia here at the Nursery are starting to bloom right now and would be a great way to put some early Spring color in your yard. We have them on sale right now -3 gallon pots at $12 each- and have the following varieties: Ghost (pale green foilage, with red blooms) Red Prince, Carnaval( red, pink and white blooms, a personal favorite), and Wine and Roses ( a Color Choice selection with a beautiful maroon/pink bloom and dark varigated foilage) These plants love the sun /partial shade and will give you years of enjoyment! Too often we dwell on what we think is wrong with life, instead of being thankful for the blessings (big and little) we enjoy each day: our spouses, kids, freedom, good ( or even decent) health, a beautiful sunrise/sunset, a good cup of coffee ( thank you West End Coffee), good music ( Vaughn Williams, Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, SRV, Claude Debussey,Chris Duarte, the Who, etc), good BBQ, a good cigar ( CAO, Drew Estates, Perdomo, etc), I could go on and on. I guess I just want to say "Thank you, LORD, for all you have given us.May we never take anything for granted, our get so used to what we have , we lose our appreciation for all we have.
