APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS

by Nancy Bollefer

It’s only a matter of time before we will be blessed with foliage and an array of stunning colour across Canada.  It can be hard to imagine we will soon be shopping for annuals to grace our yards to inject colour, colour and more colour.  Right now, the weather keeps teasing us, with rain, snow and sleet.  And, as Canadians, we are eagerly awaiting the days ahead where we can smell, see and experience the outdoors without having to bundle up and face the cold.

There are so many choices when visiting a garden centre, it can be difficult to make a decision. So, why not let your home guide you.   You can’t go wrong by selecting flowers in the same colour family as the siding of your abode!

April showers will surely bring May flowers.

Colourfully yours,
