Spring is on the Horizon!

We are anticipating temps in the 40’s this weekend! Yipppeee!

Now if we could only get rid of the snow…………

Well, it’s March 5th, and we are three days away from Daylight savings Time….Yup! Saturday night we push those clocks ahead and gain a whole hour of beautiful daylight! I’m so excited! I’ve been perusing the flower catalog’s ….White Flower Farm  is my favorite…..can’t wait for my catalog to arrive… and I am determined to plant my heart out this year! Going to rent a backhoe and dig the heck out of my property……going to transfer all the Iris’ and Forsythia, the Butterfly bushes that are growing up on the ridge – don’t know where they came from – and several of our young white pines…my favorite pine tree……..going to add to my rose bush in front of the deck, and buy a gazillion Hydrangea’s this year…..need to start my tomato plants indoors….I take the seeds from vine tomatoes, dry them and sow them in the house and then plant them in huge pots on the deck.  Last year we had cherry tomatoes till the cows came home!

What garden plans do you have for this Spring? any new plants you want to try?

My husband, the procrastinator, you remember him? the one who was determined to have all the painting done by Valentine’s Day? yup, you remember……well he keeps hiding the seed and flower catalogs when they arrive in the mail!

no matter….spring is coming up the road and is approaching Pineridge Hills…and when it finally knocks on our new red door – we will be ready! In the meantime here are some idea’s from White Flower Farm for you to enjoy over coffee……send us pictures of your gardening and we will post it! These are on my “Wish List”

Are you now dreaming of bursts of colors in your flower beds? Can you see yourself sipping a Champagne Spritzer, breathing in the sweet smell of your roses, while swaying on the old porch swing? looking out over the deep lush green grass of the sprawling front lawn?………….

SMACK!

Oh, sorry! that was that small patch of snow still sitting on top of the front porch…..serves you right for thinking THAT far ahead! Now wrap your scarf around your neck, put on your mittens and enjoy that cup of hot chocolate!

sigh……..
