At this time of year the catkins are not fully open yet, so we place them in buckets of water in a warm garage. If you keep them in the water too long, they will progress to the pollen stage. Once they are at a certain stage we take them out of the water and prune off any dead branches and bundle them up for sales. We create tall bundles for large vases and shorter bundles for smaller tabletop vases.

Warmer weather...fantastic, been patiently waiting for it to arrive. The snow is melting, saw a few blades of green grass poking out of the snow...I believe we are on our way. I don't know about you, but does it not seem like winter was extra long this year?
An array of succulents we will have available this year.

Just wish the weather was a little warmer.....
Have included a couple of more pictures from our travels this winter.
