Instagram post 17874996005151021 Anyone who thinks that gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year. For gardening, begins in January, with the dream. - Josephine Nuese

We agree 100% although we would amend the last sentence to include "and all the planning to make the dream a reality!" 🙂

January may be slow for the actual planting of container gardens, but let me tell you, we are so busy planning! We are ordering gorgeous flowers and plants for the upcoming spring planting season and researching new varieties to surprise and delight our clients. 

Speaking of delights, we have been dreaming of going to the provenwinners Grand Garden Show at the grandhotelmichigan on Mackinac Island, Michigan for years and were planning to go this past summer. Sadly this bucket list item was postponed due to covid, but we are so excited for the day it will happen. We absolutely love garden tours and Mackinac Island in the summer looks dreamy. Has anyone been to the Grand Garden Show and is it fabulous? Do tell!
