Starting to Get Excited

I was just going to stop by the store for some milk, a frozen pizza and a few apples, I swear.  Unfortunately, (really unfortunately for so many reasons) there's only one of those mega-stores whose name I'm not going to use pick up a few things.  And I'm easily distracted I guess. But who wouldn't be distracted by such exciting scenes as these: 
I wandered--or I should say, was drawn--toward the side of the store, which had been transformed from leftover holiday merchandise into a garden section bursting with the promise of imminent Spring since my last visit to the store.  My imagination took off!
So many things to grow! So much potential!  The plans and ideas started bubbling up....what can I manage this year?  I want strawberries, blueberries, asparagus... sunflowers... do calla lilies grow this far north?  
I somehow resisted the garden magazine section, which I'm sure is bursting with beautiful garden photos and ideas, but for the first time, I feel like Spring is about to arrive!
So soon, I'm going to do the planning and research work; start the seeds indoors, and get the garden underway!!


  1. I used to just love buying seedlings for our garden in South Africa! I've rarely had the patience to grow from seeds! I miss that so much!

    1. I'm lucky to live in a place where I can plant a garden--I'm not sure what I'd do without it!!

  2. I hope you will have next time what you like.


Just type your thoughts in here--
