Despite the forecast for yet another snowfall tonight and tomorrow, there are signs that changes are afoot. I saw my first Daffodil blooming yesterday, the Flowering Apricots are showing color and the Snowdrops are opening. Unfortunately these signs were not seen in my yard, but perhaps soon enough. I also now have three trucks on the board for next week set to deliver the first of our spring plants, if only one of them was loaded with paying customers. I optimistically cleared and cleaned my desk today, tied up loose ends - all in anticipation of a busier schedule. I am looking forward to saying "bye bye" to the longest month of the year, this nasty winter, and most of all, the general malaise of The Great Recession.
