May I suggest an antidote to this long, dark, wet and cold spring? Meerkerk Gardens in Greenbank is now abloom with plum trees, daffodils, and a wide array of early rhododendrons. On a recent damp, gray morning, my eyes brightened and a smile crept across my face as I walked along the new winding entry path and into the woodlands spotting pinks, reds, and whites below the towering evergreens. Go visit! It will boost the spirits even on the gloomiest of days.
