Today, I'm off to a talk at Blomidon Nurseries, but just wanted to share some of these fine folks before I head out.. Hope you're enjoying spring so far! I'm looking out my window with a hot cup of tea and enjoying the view of a handful of chickadees playing in my ornamental grasses.. a nice way to start the day.
