Ah, it's that time of year.
Outside, there's only cold, damp, and gray Winter weather...depressing to say the least.
Depressing that is until...you check the mailbox. And there it is. Peaking out from between the electric bill and the grocery sale papers and the envelopes addressed to occupant. Those ubiquitous 5 letters somewhere on the cover:
"S E E D S"
Then you see another and another, and the next day yet another one comes and then the cycle is repeated for the next week or two. Suddenly your table is filled with dreams of Spring.
The images remain dancing in our heads. The colorful and fragrant flowers. The delicious and tasty vegetables. The sweet and luscious fruits. The strange and exotic plants.
I have gathered all of mine (plus some that didn't make it to the photo op) into a pile, made a nice hot drink to counteract the cold and took out my marker.
You can plant seeds anywhere you have dirt and want to try to grow something. Seed catalogs are the ultimate in hope for the future.
Let the planning begin!
