Early spring at Tree Bistro (buds and more, oh my)!

….overwhelmed with joy at the sight of the first buds at Tree Bistro, where I designed and planted a garden last year, with the help of Tree Bistro owner, Colm Clancy….loved enhancing the beauty of this great space with planting 3 trees last year as well as many beautiful shrubs and flowers…..Because Hurricane Sandy got in the way of our fall plans to plant bulbs, after the cleanup yesterday, we planted a bunch of early spring beautiful flowers: pansies, ranunculus, two variations of bleeding hearts, perennial evergreen fern, tulips, daffodils, and muscari (grape hyacinths), etc.Image
