Thanks for a great mini-guide to local garden centers and nurseries, as a beginner, these places can offer a lot of experience and knowledge.

Dear Dolores,

My pal Ted, a master gardener, offers some reality:

Happy Spring! Happy Gardening!

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like
dirt. -- Margaret Atwood

I love spring anywhere,
but if I could choose
I would always greet it in a garden.
-- Ruth Stout

This exceptional pal is across our country in Virginia Beach, but within our home we call EARTH. Touch it!!

Hal Pal
