The sun is shining brightly outside and I received my Nasturtium “Spitfire” seeds from Renee’s Garden yesterday in the mail. These are the seeds I am planting and posting about each month for the Grow project along with many other garden bloggers. It will be very interesting to compare notes with everyone from all over the country!
I have been a fan of Renee’s Garden for some time now. It started the year I received the kitchen garden cookbooks as a birthday gift (from my cousin Renee ironically) along with a beautiful selection of seeds that I planted that year. Seeds, gardening books, cookbooks are absolutely fantastic gifts for the gardening person …… they will love you forever!
I have also secured my ticket to the Chicago Flower and Garden Show this year and I am totally excited! The schedule of events and vendors looks fantastic and of course, I will share all my photos here. The ideas that can be developed from the displays is truly remarkable and I definitely need some sound ideas for our place down south….much, much landscaping and gardening and planting to be done!
Going through all my records and charts I am starting to put together for this growing season, I decided I would like to create a nice Garden Journal and once again this may be something I make for The Great Garden Giveaway gift also! I will be going to the local Joann’s craft store tomorrow to watch several demos on the Cricut machine (a scrapbooking marvel) and will decide if I want to invest in one. I have been researching on the Cricut message boards and there is alot of information and members there. If I do purchase I may have a pre-giveaway giveaway to celebrate …..Stay tuned!!!
