Something Short, Something Sweet, Something to Kick-off 2016

As the optimist say, “new year, new beginnings.  And me finding myself to be an optimist, couldn’t agree more!   January happens to be a great time to not only reflect on oneself and set personal goals for the year, but also a time to reflect on your home and garden from the previous year and start planning out projects and your dream garden for 2016.

There are a variety of gardeners that think gardening should start no earlier then the first day of spring, which happens to be March 20th this year.  There are also some horticulturist that simply can not start planning until the warmer weather comes around mid-Spring.  But for us, January is the prime time to stroll the gardens and reminisce on the previous year, while adding to the wish list of this year.  It also proves a good time to start some of the winter clean-up from all the windstorms even though there are sure to be a few more.

This next year I plan on taking you a little further into the projects we’re doing around the cottage and gardens as we explore all the possibilities that 2016 can bring us.  We hope that you also have that spark of excitement to commence this year in the home and garden so you can plan to make it a fabulous one.

Cheers to 2016!
