Sun in Sight

 

Open Saturdays beginning next week!

 

It looks to be timely. A taste of spring next week, gives us hope for the season ahead. The great news for us all is that spring is now officially one month away. Unofficially speaking however, spring begins as March arrives. This doesn't mean that all chance of cold weather has passed for this year; that is very unlikely. Fortunately, it does mean that temperatures will continue to moderate. Old man winter will again give way to the splendor that is spring.

 

He won't give up without a fight however. If you look at next week's forecast, you will smile.  If you look at this weekend’s forecast, not so much.  The current weather fight is not cold; it’s wet.  Heavy rains are forecast for Friday and Saturday.  I suggest you take this ‘opportunity’ to survey drainage deficiencies on your lot; you will most likely have no shortage of water.

 

We’ve been busy all winter. There is much to do to prepare for spring. We have been cleaning our lot, rebuilding benches, painting, repairing frozen irrigation lines… I could expand this list ad infinitum. The point is, there is much for us to get done in preparation for your arrival. We know company’s coming; we want to look our best!

 

Over the next week, we plan on making significant progress towards transforming our now nearly empty paved sales area into a cornucopia of horticultural delights. It is a process that takes considerable time, and many truckloads of plants. Over the next week, our first shipments of trees will arrive along with several other truckloads of plants from our many wonderful vendors. I would like to tell you we will have every thing done and in a complete state of readiness, anxiously awaiting your arrival. I would like to tell you that. The truth is, we're just going to keep plugging away at it. The transformational process is just that, a process.

 

Got to go for now, we've got guests arriving! We look forward to seeing you. The sun is in sight!

    Is that a hellebore? It's GORGEOUS! I want one! (Tell Terry, LOL!) I know it's been a slow road, but I hope Spring is dry enough that you are covered UP with customers!

    It sure is! It is a "Onyx Odyssey" :)
