Spring Rain

New boxwood leaves

My garden seemed to be literally growing before my eyes today. All over the garden, I could see new growth on hedges and trees.  Everything always looks so wonderful during the rain, perhaps because of the contrast between the gray sky and the bright green of the new leaves or simply because the rain washes away all the dust. For whatever reason, spring rain brings delightful results. If you’re willing to get a little wet, you can enjoy your garden just as it sprouts!
