When a garden center opens for the season, it is like Christmas for one segment of the population as is hunting or fishing for another. When Christmas in May arrives, Mother Nature is Santa. That which was dormant comes to life. Flowers replace twinkling lights, green grass replaces white snow. The spirit of the season is the same.
Well, Christmas is nearly here and there are a few cho-choo trains out there, but there are also many versions of electronic games envied by many, some soon to be left by the wayside when something better comes along. With plants, there is always something new. A flower opens, goes through its cycle, a new one takes its place, changing ever so slowly yet noticeable. Despite the news, we anticipate this May will be the best Christmas ever. Merry Christmas!
