Storey's First Bloom Day

When I heard the buzz about the Garden Blogger's Bloom Day over at May Dreams Garden, I thought it would be fun to get Storey employees (many of whom are avid vegetable and flower gardeners) to participate in this monthly online event. While Inside Storey isn't strictly a gardening blog, the category is quickly growing with posts from our author Edward C. Smith, and a postcard from a tree planting from Acquiring editor Deb Burns, with many more garden-related stories and tips to come. Spring is transforming the Berkshire hills that surround us from brown to green, and our yards are exploding with the first of the season's blooms. Here's a glimpse of what we're seeing. If you're a first-time visitor, welcome to Inside Storey!

Very nice. This is the first "group" bloom day post that I can recall.

It looks like your gardens are just a few weeks behind mine. There are so many blooms to look forward to in the spring!

Thanks for joining in,

Carol, May Dreams Gardens
