Strolling through downtown Frederick revealed just how sudden and welcome spring's colors and scents really are. My personal favorite is the green doors below. Frederick has so much history preserved on its streets--if I lived in this particular house, I believe I would hug my door everyday. Green is just the happiest color!
I don't know about you, but I'm ready to get my hands in the dirt. To me, the metallic smell of dirt and grimy garden hands truly signify the arrival of warm weather months. What spring plants compel you to break out the old gloves and trowel? Do you have any special gardening traditions or practices?
