It's the first day of Spring but we're still under a heavy coating of snow. I have to admit that our trip to Portugal got us thinking about the landscaping for the house. Last year, we had a horrible drought and were so busy with the renovations that we didn't have a chance to even touch the yard. Our plan is to let the woods take back over a bit and do some planting of native plants like sea roses. We're so ready to get the gardening gloves but, for now, we'll settle for mittens.
