It has been a cold few weeks and many of you are probably longing for spring. You can bring some spring into your home if you take some pruning shears and go out into your yard. If you have forsythia bushes, prune some branches and bring them into the house. Place the branches into a vase of water and, in a short period of time, the forsythia branches will come into bloom. Seeing those bright yellow flowers in your home will really help with spring fever.
We have also have available, in our store, some primrose plants that are in bloom; ditto for pots of miniature daffodils and cyclamen. Also, we have paperwhite bulbs and amaryllis bulbs. There is no reason to suffer from spring fever when the cure is available.
Well, that’s all for this week. I’ll talk to you again next week.
