Okay folks, we had snow in New York and at my country house in the Catskills it was 9 degrees this morning. I’m not sure what’s going on with the weather in your neighborhood, but here’s my prediction: by two weeks from now in addition to flowers, there will be “Garage Sale!” signs popping up all over the country. So, here’s my first week of spring tip: start your spring cleaning by getting a big box and label it “SALE” and start cleaning out those closets. (I’m on my 3rd box.) You, like the birds, will be happy in a clean nest and you can use the money you make off your big sale to splurge on something fun… like flowers for the garden!
