Hope Springs Nursery.... why is it named this? Thinking about this now after the nasty weather on Friday. Last Monday, the lilac pots were up and looking great. Today, they're submerged in snow again. Poor little sticks! I planned to work outside this weekend to start setting up for our 2018 opening in April. Instead, I've been very busy filling gas cans to keep the generator going! It's just a dreary snow-and-mud mess here now. But.... "Hope springs eternal in the human breast..." From Alexander Pope's poem An Essay on Man. "Hope"-fully next weekend will be better!
