Spring fever

We are feeling it, how about you! The sun has been warmer, the snow is almost gone, and it is supposed to be close to 60 degrees and sunny this weekend. Yippee!!

Received a new catalog in the mail yesterday- Spring Hill Nurseries. They have beautiful plants and great garden plans. I am really looking forward to tending to the garden and planting flowers. If you don't get this catalog all of their great stuff is available online

Another great road map for garden plans is on the Better Homes and Gardens website. They have great ideas, plans and advice for growing gardens of any size.

While planting and planning the garden is fun- what about accessorizing it? Last fall I bought an old trike for $3.00 at an estate sale. I can not wait to put it in my garden, and I am hoping to find a basket to fit the front to add some plants-similar to this one.

Old metal coffee pots and teacups make great planters too! Don't forget the hens and chicks in old boots, hope mine survived from last year.

Not sure what I would have a place for this last one, but love the elegance this could add to the garden. Could you image candles in these for a small gathering.

Now on to some more spring planning....
