"April is the cruellest month ..."
And here we are enduring a very nasty April indeed. We have been given mostly snow today. Not bad, better than ice.
I need you to be thinking about trees and shrubs. About planting them to soften your landscape; to add dimension and interest; to make your house not look like it was dropped from outer space; to make your garden think you really care.
Is that too much to ask? No.
