Sign of Spring!

First sign of the hope of Spring.
The first seed catalog has arrived.
Instantly makes me start thinking and planning my gardens!
Both perennial flowers and vegetables.
I need two more raised bed boxes.
(hint:  Bob : ))

I have to buy some blueberry bushes this year!!

I love planting potatoes!  It's like finding buried treasure in the fall.

Then, of course , there's tomatoes, which I buy the plants at the garden center.

And green beans, yummm.

There's nothing like the sweetness of homegrown carrots and beets!

I always find a new herb or two to add to my herb garden.

Awww, lavender.  I'm going to buy some big plants this spring.

I need a new hydrangea too.  That Harlequin is one I don't have.

Can't forget the butterflies.

And the hummingbirds and bees.

No English garden would be complete without foxglove.
Mine reseed themselves really well but here are some colors I don't have.

I love sunflowers but mine didn't do well last summer??

I know these guys are considered pests but look how cute!!

Well, that made me feel better just looking through the catalogue!
Hurry up Spring.
The ground hog said we have 6 more weeks of winter though!
However, Ohio has their own weather predicting ground hog since 1970.  His name is Buckeye Chuck and he didn't see his shadow, so I like his prediction better!!
He has his own website too.

Stay warm folks. . . it's still snowing here!
