Every year we enjoy the two-month cycle of planting perennials, annuals, shrubs, trees, etc. around the bed and breakfast to spruce it up for the coming season. Our Inn guests always comment on just how beautiful the grounds of the bed and breakfast are as a result of our efforts. The West Michigan planting season typically doesn’t “safely” begin until the beginning of May, but we always find ways around it to make it work to our advantage. It may seem odd, but our way of knowing when we are officially “done” with the spring plantings is when we have the spring vehicle detailing done for us. It was just completed this weekend, which means that we can not haul anymore significantly large amount of plants in it as we have for the past two months. Yeah! Another true sign that summer is officially here!
