For the past 3 days I've spent all my time in the garden pruning. It's always a big job and with the ice storm last winter there was a lot of damage, so I've had to be a bit more brutal than I would wish. One of the great joys of pruning is bringing out the shape of things. It always gives me pleasure; that and finding the surprises, like another small patch of trillium. They don't self-seed easily in my garden so this was a huge treat. And the fiddleheads, still wearing their furry coats, are popping up everywhere. I love spring.
