Favorite Friday Rerun

Sorry, no Shakespeare today. It’s Friday and this weather pattern is not looking promising so it’s rerun time. Are you like me, getting lazy about spending time in the garden? Let’s shuffle through the archives and look for something to give a bit of get-up and go for another overcast day. Last May’s post, ‘Extend the Pizzazz’ is a quick read and should give you some incentive to do a little nursery shopping and planting for spring color that extends beyond these dreary patches. This weather is perfect for planting new trees and shrubs. Check the ground and make sure mud soup is not an issue. Otherwise, get planting and pick some of these choice Azaleas to extend your spring color.

As we wrap up the work week, just a reminder to keep your eye on what is growing in your garden. Diseases can be prevalent with this type of continuous damp weather so be vigilant - keep those inevitable plant ailments away by getting outside the first minute there is a break and treat accordingly.

So think about extending your spring color and remember the words of Lawrence G. Lovasik. “Nobody needs a smile so much as the one who has none to give. So get used to smiling heart-warming smiles, and you will spread sunshine in a sometimes dreary world.” Smiles and a colorful plant palette can brighten any dreary spring day.
