Sooner or later - within a month, I hope! - Spring will arrive. For now, this poor old Fothergilla Mt. Airy looks awfully dead. Nevertheless, it was nice enough this afternoon to do a little work in my garden. And, truly, signs of life are everywhere. Not only does the Fothergilla show some fat buds, but so do the Viburnums, and the Maples are showing a foot or more or new growth. Warmer days will no doubt bring a bit more excitement.
