Spring into Spring

Before & After, Curb Appeal, Gardening

Today marks the official first day of spring – and lucky for us, the weather reflects that today with a wonderful high of 70 degrees F. The coming of spring can also mean many things, such as spring cleaning, new life as plants begin to grow again, finding new ways to do things, or a new fresh look.

How about this spring, you find a new way to relax. You can sit back in a hammock, enjoying the chirping of the birds and the humming of the bees and lawn mowers – and think about how you won’t have to drive in or shovel snow until next winter. We think this photo describes exactly what spring should be all about, when it comes to relaxing…
