Browsing through my picture files last night I found the above Crocus dated March 17, 2010. Now that puts the pep back in my step! Have you ever noticed when you become excited about something, your actions become quicker and you are more animated..could it be a sign of happiness?!? I definitely feel that way thinking about gardening and anticipating the beauty of the flowers arriving in a few weeks.

Soon spring will arrive and I will be ready! We attended a Garden Show this past weekend and there was much talk about preparing for the arrival of the garden season. One of the speakers talked of native plants and proudly showed picture after picture of her beautiful efforts in the garden and how to achieve the same results. Pictures are such an important reminder to refresh our memory and bring happiness but also as a note of comparison and reflection from year to year. Wondering if my grandkids grandkids would enjoy a Gardening Journal full of beautiful pictures from Great Great Granny!
A few herb plants I purchased at the show are Rosemary, Stevia and Lemongrass. I have found these a little difficult to start from seed and seeing them growing right along in little pots I had to bring them home.
Also thank you very much Mary Ann for sending me these vegetable seeds which I can’t wait to start. I will be adding them to my Gardening List for 2011 – Purple Beauty Sweet Pepper, Amana Orange Tomato, Black Cherry Tomato and Black Krim Tomato.
Soon .. Soon Spring will Arrive and I am ready!!
