This spring has been outstanding. As I am looking out my window this cloudy morning the grass and trees are so green and grateful for all this rain. This year, it seems like it's better then other years or is it just that old spring fever again. I wake up with a smile on my face and ready to face the day. My customers and friends that come are of the same mind, no lamenting here.
Seeing the plants emerge from the ground is like seeing all of my gardening friends that also emerge this time of year. Some have grown, some are the same, and some have died away and somehow new plants find their way into the garden and new customers find there way here as well. Of course we at Morningside change too; a new greenhouse went up where our herbs abide, shade perennials moved around to a new home and there are ever so many subtle changes only old customers would notice.
We are working like mad to make everything beautiful and welcoming. I have finally figured out that the nursery, like my home, is my attempt at making a place I would like to find on a back road. Full of blues and greens, people who love plants and love to talk about plants, and of course the plants themselves. Sharing a life's passion is the best part of being here. I can make people happy just by being here; we make a difference in the quality of the lives of the people who come here. Pass this on if you feel like it, it's good to pass around happy thoughts. I have also started a facebook page to jot down day to day happenings or not happenings as the case may be. Check us out. Onward and upward in the spring garden.
