Last Saturday, my grandson and I planted a number of flowers in my garden. He made a new friend (Mr. Worm) and got his hands dirty! He’s definitely into nature, and for that, I am grateful. The day after Easter Sunday, tulips, daffodils and crocuses emerged brightening up the garden and the front of my house. Have you begun getting your hands dirty? I hope your week was blessed, restful and, if you were able to hang out with your children on Spring break, enjoyable.
Before I go into the weekend events, I want to remind you that there are only a few more days till April 15! If you haven’t done so yet, the New York Public Library in Staten Island is offering FREE tax preparation at the following branches: Richmondtown--Tuesday from 11-3, St.
Are you in the mood yet to get your hands into the soil and start preparing your garden? I turned my compost and saw plenty of worms fertilizing the dirt. If they are ready, I am, too!
