What to do with one more countdown… it’s just 16 weeks until Memorial Day! So here’s an Annie show tune. Clap your hands, whistle and sing. Come on now. Let’s at least get your feet and clippers tapping in place. First, some stout words from an anonymous but very tuned in author who once said, “Patience is counting down without blasting off.”
The question is – are you in the launching stance or are you still resting in your easy chair, comforted that planting and warm summer evenings seem ions away? Are you ready for that long, luxurious Memorial Day weekend that marks the calendar ‘GARDEN’ in so many ways?
Hopefully you’ve sorted through the seed drawer. http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2012/01/time-to-be-rearranging.html. And orders like your fruit trees are in place. And those liners like blueberries and raspberries and your favorite veggies are quickly taking shape. With this mild and snowless winter, pruning and miscellaneous garden chores are already under way.
Maybe you lingered through this winter, procrastinating the planning phase of your outdoor getaway. Not the cottage by the sea but your own backyard. There’s no more time to wait. What to do with one more countdown… it’s just 16 weeks until Memorial Day!
