Happy April, No Foolin'

Goodbye (and good riddance) to March and hello Spring-- we hope!

I'm so happy to see some vibrant color returning to our landscape... the crocus' are providing a pop of purple and soon Newport will be awash with 866,500 yellow blooms and green glowing trees will light up the night thanks to Daffodil Days and Arboretum Week. Also, Clean Ocean Access and Ballard Park have Spring Clean-up events planned to tidy up the Island. Keep reading for details on these events and more to start enjoying Spring outdoors. 
All best,
 and if you please
