The month of March, will it come in like a lion or a lamb? Do you have cabin fever and the walls closing in around you? Now is a good time to get ideas to redecorate, pick out some fresh new colors to paint and new ways to add fabric to brighten your rooms. Books for decorating on a small budget or more lavishly are available at the Spencer and Stratford branch libraries.
Did you get your seed catalogs yet? If you did, are you thinking about what type of landscaping you can do with all the beautiful plants? Or do you need to start a garden and need help on how to go about it whether it is for vegetables or flowers. Many garden books can easily be checked out at the library. Get your ideas and start planting when the season is ready.
