||March 26 2007, spring cleanup has begun
at Willow Brook Acres. At left Sally and garden dog Lily
are hoping the weather will get warmer from here on. Our
last frost date is May 15 and it has been known to snow here in
But then came the endless winter...
The 2007 early spring quickly turned
into an endless winter. After a brief early spring clean up, winter began
again with days of snow and 20 degree temperatures. On April 14, we are expecting another snow from the west edge
of a Nor'easter that will slam into Pennsylvania, New York and some New
England states. They are predicting an inch of slushy snow for us.

Cherry that is the first to bloom at Willow Brook Acres. We
enjoyed it for one day because the next day we were greeted with a snow
and freezing temperatures. The picture at left is the tree in
bloom in the April snow.
Willow Brook Acres is a home grown business that grew out of a love for a most excellent and easy to grow perennial, the daylily.
John and Sally Marcum are a two person team that
have been married for 45
years and have been gardening with daylilies for 20 years. While Sally is the
gardener and hybridizer, she knows she could not run
Willow Brook Acres without John.
