Spring - FINALLY HERE!!!

Like everyone living in this area of the country – I AM HAPPY!  Finally, the Spring flowers have started to bloom. It has been a very cold and snowy winter in the area.  In fact, the worst snow storm every recorded since records were started over a century ago, happened only a few short weeks ago.
The Gardens at Waters Eastwants of share the joy of the season.
Believe me, this is a good thing!

ENJOY
















ALL OF THIS AND MORE AFTER WHAT WE HAD HERE ONLY LATE LAST MONTH!
