Spring has Sprung!

Happy spring everyone.  At this time of year I love to take note of everything outdoors that is changing.  The leaves are coming out on the trees, the spring bulbs are popping up everywhere, the flowering shrubs and fruit trees are budding.  The birds are very vocal as they mark their territories, and the goldfinches have made their appearance again.

Spring is such a hopeful season, with new growth in nature and new personal beginnings.  What projects will you be working on this season?  Here are a few new products to inspire you:
