The past few days have been filled with a tease of Spring! My pansy's are perking up...the grass is getting greener and growing...there is even a certain smell that is quite refreshing. I am a huge fan of fireplaces...sweaters...cold weather...but, when the signs of Spring begin to emerge...my favorite season can certainly change. This time of year stirs my botanical genes...yet, I don't seem to have any. My green thumb is practically dried up and petrified...but, I can still appreciate the value of a good verb: Bloom!
