It's forty-ish here in Hell's Kitchen, and daffodils that we planted last year
in DeWitt Clinton Park & the Clinton Community garden are starting to rise and
bloom - my crocuses are coming up nicely,  cheering a pretty grey day.

So this note from Coquitlam, British Columbia, where it has to be much colder
was particularly cheering:

"Gardening info at Colony Farm meeting

Mar 24 2006
All 265 members, associates and friends of the Colony Farm Community Organic
Gardens are invited to attend the group's first general meeting for 2006.
The topic of the meeting, scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, March 27 at Coquitlam
Public Library's Poirier branch, is "Organic Gardening 101: Aeration to
Zucchini." It is suited for both beginning and well-seasoned gardeners.
Guest speaker will be Roberta Ward, manager of Gardenworks at Mandeville. She
will cover gardening basics such as soil and seed preparation, and timing of
plantings, and share information on her favourite seed varieties.
Questions are encouraged and there will be light refreshments and door prizes.
For more information, email cfcg@shaw.ca. "

Seems like the time of looking at plant catalogues, throwing potato peels into
steaming compost and longing for color is coming to an end.
