Looking outside my window the world is huddled under a blanket of white powder. The sort that freezes your bones and after making snow angels and fairy igloos for hours you want to retreat from, at least for a little, to warm your fingers and toes. During a winter wonderland induced hibernation I have spent some time plotting for next summer's backyard flower farm. Yes, I know, or suspect, it will not be a full scale flower farm, but rather a step in the direction of expanded cultivation. My plan is to till more of our lawn into beds and intersperse flowers between the fruits and veggies already under cultivation. I'd also like to fill many of the little spaces between and amongst other plantings with FLOWERS! And maybe someday, perhaps not this year, I'll dream up a flower maze for our front yard, one that will thrill birds, bees, butterflies and neighbors alike.
