Is the spring coming?' he said. 'What is it like?' ...
'It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine, and things pushing up and working under the earth.'

Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Last year, we bought our home on the north shore of Massachusetts. The property is over 2 acres, abutting conservation land. A hidden gem, shrouded in neglect. This spring, with the help of a few landscapers and arborists, life seems to have returned to the gardens we had truly thought were filled with nothing but bittersweet, dandelions and poison ivy. Today, I took a short break from wedding editing to capture some of the life that persists despite being overlooked for years.
