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,
