John Forti, horticultural director for the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, poses at Elm Bank in Wellesley, Mass., Thursday, April 16, 2015. The barrage of snow and cold in New England this winter has pushed back the gardening season and left behind damaged bushes, trees and greenhouses and gardeners eager to get outside and in the dirt. Forti says the weight of the snow broke tree limbs and crushed shrubs as it fell off roofs. But the good news is that the water table is up significantly, which will help plants recovering from the tough winter. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)
