A couple days ago I went to our local Dollar Store and found boxes of seeds for several types of flowers, wild flowers, flowers that attract Hummingbirds, and flowers that attract butterflies, I purchased a box of each and started dreaming about tilling up my flower bed and planting the seeds, one of the surest things about Winter that we can always count one when the weather is at it’s worst is that Spring will follow.  What are you planning for Spring?

Joell, I’ve been thinking about my gardens too, which are under 15″ of new snow from Tues. I’m wondering which perennial flowers will have survived the harsh winter we’re having. Don’t have any seed catalogs this year though, will have to order some. I like to look at a catalog in addition to looking online.

Someone said “only seven more weeks until spring”, but of course it will be longer than that here.

Good luck with your seeds! I’m sure the flowers will be beautiful!

Remember, if it rains on your picnic it's also raining on your garden!

Quite a few seed catalogs have been arriving in the mail which I thoroughly enjoy.  Can’t wait to start playing in the soil although it will be a long wait until at least the end of May.  I was craving seeing something grow so I cut the tops off of a few carrots and placed them in a saucer of water.  At least I can fuss over these.  Wish I had a heated greenhouse!!!  No chance of that happening.
