I was out in our garden this weekend rummaging around and look what I found lurking beneath mounds of dead leaves? This is such an exciting time of year for me when I see the new growth in the garden. It's a promise of things to come. I always have a lot of grand ideas in spring - moving plants around, pruning boxwoods into spheres, redesigning certain areas of the garden. I know myself well enough that I have to get everything done before the heat and humidity sets in here in Montreal in July (and August). I'm useless in the heat - I wilt just like some of my beloved flowers. Do you enjoy gardening? Any plans for your garden this year? Do tell. I'd love to hear about it.

Yesterday afternoon, there were explosions at the Boston Marathon. People died and many many were injured. I hope they and their loved ones find solace and peace through the outpouring of love the world is offering. Bless them all.
