Plant A Flower Day

Hello friends,
I'm writing to you from a brand new computer.  
The last one wasn't very old but kind of contrary from the start.  
Then one day it just froze like a brick.  
Not good timing for our pc to up and die.  

Anyways; I've missed writing here and sharing with all of you.
 In real life, the shabby olde potting shed is beginning to grow a little.  
We've had tons of rain and with every sunrise things look  greener.  
As soon as it dries out enough; it'll be time to fire up the tiller.  
I'm getting so anxious to start diggin in the soil....
-to be really warm ... and get a farmers tan going.
I wore a tank top yesterday afternoon out working 
There's nothing like feeling that warm sunshine on your neck and  shoulders.  
It's the little things!
Since I last wrote; tomatoes, daisies, and chamomile are sprouting under  grow lights.  
-Just today I picked up a package of Dixie cups to start another mess of flowers in.
I used those little five dollar flats to grow the tomatoes in and I'll just bet they'll need
to be transplanted into something bigger before I can set them out.  
There's just not enough soil in those.  
The Dixie cups work better for me; you can write on them what's planted and they're cheap. 
Wish I'd have used them to start with.
Speaking of planting;  it's plant a flower day!  So if you've been waiting for an excuse...
there's one for us  right there.
If you live up North; I realize you'd  have to plant something in a pot and keep inside a good while still.
I feel for those of you who are getting snow storms right now.  
Spring really is coming though.  

I had to go to an eye appointment this morning and on my way home; 
 dropped off a tiny pot of lavender at a neighbors door.  
She and I  have a standing joke, how we both kill lavender but
....maybe we shouldn't  claim defeat with flowers-  
...   keep fighting for the sake of flowers.
She said hopefully this will make it.  
We  can always give it another go can't we?... 
Every day is a new day.
Every season a new season. 
 Plant something else, or some where else...
But  keep sowing those seeds.  
Afterall, who  knows what could happen? 
Just thinking of it all gets
my head spinning like a rusty whirligig...with new ideas.  
-Especially cool things to plant in, and ways to make the garden 
fun  for my  grand daughter.
A place for fairies and gnomes to hide. 
Just think of all the possibilities!

I sign off with a new scripture picture to share.  
Feel free to use and pass it on. 

Have a great day!  
And thank you  for visiting the shed,

Hello dear friend, how great to come visit again....

It is still cold here in Scotland after our snow and March winds....the only flowers enjoying themselves are the snowdrops and the crocus are popping up to see what is happening!

I love your scripture artwork and the verse, such a Blessing to keep.

YOU are Always a Blessing.
