We are having a rainy, blustery, cool week. The downside is that we are all craving warm sunshine; the upside is the magical work of spring rain. Gentle rain washes away winter grime, refreshes wind burned trees and shrubs, and makes the grass turn that delicious green we have so missed. The spring rain beads up on newly sprouted leaves, for the perfect picture of renewal, growth, freshness. Garden life gets juicy - and once the warm sun hits this recharged landscape, the gardens will go boom!
