|Iris reticulata anxiously await Spring's arrival in the garden|
If you want to be sure Spring comes to your garden, you absolutely must run out right now and open up your garden gate.
If Spring arrives and your garden gate is closed, she may pass you by and you'll face weeks of who knows what kind of weather. I wouldn't risk it.
If Spring arrives and your garden gate is open, she will enter and take up residence and you will have weeks of wonderful weather, beautiful flowers, and the trees will leaf out in the most wonderful shades of green.
Why risk it, when it is so simple to open up your garden gate, even if just for a few minutes at 6:45 pm EDT?
Of course, as you might have guessed, the same holds true for your house. You simply must open up a window or door so Spring feels welcome when she arrives. Then, with Spring in your house, you will feel as though the weight of the world has been lifted from your shoulders. You'll have that wonderful feeling you get when you take off your heavy winter coat, for the last time until Winter arrives again.
But we need no longer think of Winter. Winter is far, far away in the future now, and Spring is here. Open the garden gates, open the doors, open the windows...
