If there is any bright side to this pandemic that has completely turned our lives upside down, it’s that gardening is one of the few allowed excuses for being outdoors right now.

Now that spring is finally here, we can get out in our gardens, tend our plantings and even plant something new. Gardening is for many, and certainly for me, an excellent free form of therapy. In my garden I turn off stress, forget the madness around me now, and focus on nature.
