Spring comes quickly in Vermont. Last week we had snow and this week have grass growing and daffodils blooming in some areas.

If you are thinking of putting your house on the market, now is the time to rake the stones back into your driveway. Get a load of crushed pea stone and fill in the potholes. Edge your flowerbeds, rake up the dead grass and clean up the dog poo.

Cut back the dead growth in your flowerbeds and mulch the heck out of them.

Once it gets warmer plant some pansies for color.       

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
