Time to Garden!

Let’s face it – winter has been brutal this year. It has been cold, and there have been several cold storms that the South wasn’t ready for. So almost everyone is ready for the green and new life that spring brings.

Some people are forcing their bulbs to bloom right now to bring a little life into their world.

This particular indoor garden is a little ray of sunshine in the middle of the winter.

A terrarium is a nice splash of green that would brighten up any room.

Or perhaps this set of wicker trays (available at A Design Resource):

Some people are getting ready to plant. Even the littlest helpers are excited about new life!

If you don’t have a lot of space, you can always consider container gardening. herb garden

Look how great this balcony looks. It’s a little oasis in the middle of a city.

The city of Pell City is working towards a community garden. I am on the planning committee and we’re working on possibilities. As with any public work, we’ve got a number of issues to work through, including funding and plans. I’m very excited about the potential to bring some beauty to downtown Pell City!

Most of all, though, it’s time for SPRING and LIFE and RENEWAL!  I love this time of year for so many reasons! What’s your favorite part of spring? Do you have any plans for a garden or to add some green into your life?
