Every year at this time it’s the same routine-mow the lawn one last time, take the snow blower in for a tune-up, move the junk in the garage that’s accumulated over the summer so that the cars can once again fit in their stalls, cut down garden plants that provide no winter interest, and wrap vulnerable trees against possible deer or rabbit damage. These are easy decisions: the one that give us fits is over when to fill pots and window boxes with winter dress. I think this year’s debate was likely settled by the early November snowfall. Sure, it won’t likely last, but that first bit of white leaves no doubt that more is on the way.
Why not get the outdoor finery installed before it gets REALLY snappy? I always find myself more creative if my fingers and toes aren’t frozen ice chunks. At K & K, we’ve been out on the nursery grounds recently cutting all manner of greenery to tempt you- white pine, cedar, yew, arborvitae and white fir. We’ve laid in an ample supply of beautiful non-native greens as well and think the spruce tops we’ve stocked are the fullest, freshest ever. We invite your visit.
As we’re scrambling to get all manner of work done outside, and may not be handy to greet you, we suggest a call ahead to be sure someone’s around before you venture out in our direction.
One last thought, though by no means an afterthought – many thanks for your patronage in 2013. In these tenuous times, we’re delighted with the support of long-standing and new customers alike and are proud to have accomplished one more year of service as we approach 100 years of doing what we love.
