Garden Resources: Go Play in the Dirt!

Gorgeous flowers in Madison Homes for SaleI spent all day in the yard yesterday, building new garden beds, planting tomato starters, and yanking weeds from the flower beds that are finally filling in with color. I had begun to worry it might never be warm again -- that winter would last until next fall, that we might skip this summer altogether. So I met yesterday's yard chores with gratitude -- even the sunburn felt good. I know I'm not the only one relieved that it's finally, gloriously warm enough to play in the dirt. So we pulled together a few events and garden resources for anyone looking for some outdoor inspiration!
