Avon Garden Club

Avon, Ohio


Well, it’s early this year. The excruciatingly sore body because I try to jam my entire yard clean up into as few days as possible. Spent two hours picking up sticks yesterday and today I can’t bend over, but I still managed to go out in the rain and rake out one garden. I will pay tomorrow.

Everything is coming up faster than I can get it cleaned up! I’ve already potted up some plants for the plant sale and hopefully so have you.

I had crocus covered in bees the first week in March and the buds are already done and falling from the maple trees. Lots of things have overwintered that usually die back to the ground.

It should be a very interesting spring. I know El Nino is bad for our ecosystem, but it’s impossible not to enjoy it. It always snows at least once in April, but maybe not this year?
