Spring came in the mail today.

Well its been in the 30's today with a cold rain.  I didn't even bother to go out anywhere today.  Instead I decided to finish up some of those spring projects I have been working on.  I hope to have several finished by Saturday night so I can show you a few things.  I usually try to have projects in different finishing stages.  I always try to have something cut out and stitched, I do most of my stuffing at night.  It helps spring come a little faster when I get something finished and out for display.  Oh the mail man brought a little something for spring today, it was the latest Judy Condon book, Simply Country Gardens.  I flipped through the pages and my mouth started watering.  It was page after page of country gardens, I was starting to get all kind of ideas.  This book is really going to help in my planning stages for my gardens.  I especially liked the Mills Gardens on pg. 78 and the Walker Gardens on pg. 110.  Its just all good.  Hey is it spring yet, now I definitly in the mood to go out and play in the dirt.  Vicky


  1. OH You are one lucky lady! I want that BOOK so bad...where do I get it? What a way to spend a winter weekend...looking through that book! ENJOY! I can't wait to see your SPring Projects!

    and thanks for following my blogs!:)

  2. Hmmmmm, wishing won't do it. Sorry. Much as we love to garden, we know it is weeks away.....More winter is possible, even probable. I'm optimistic, though. I bought zucchini and cucumber seeds. :)
    Oh, and some birdhouse gourd seeds. I need some new ones for the wrens.
    I'm going to plant a terrarium to take the edge off the craving.
