Spring is almost here! Spring is almost here. Spring is almost here? Right now, like much of the country, this mantra is helping me get through this nasty, seemingly no end in sight, winter. Granted, as a Texan living in the frozen tundra that is New York City, I might be a bit of a winter wimp. Regardless, spring is almost here and it's time to get your planters ready for cheery blooms, and front doors ready to greet the rain boots and sandals that will soon replace all the winter gear. I just need to tell myself one more time, spring is almost here!
