I'm thinking ahead toward Spring. This gloomy, never-ending winter has put me in a day dreaming mind of gardens and sunshine.
Growing up in a rural area seems to have planted a hardy, farm-girl seed somewhere inside of me, and I love messing around in gardens. I live in a medium sized city now, and when I got married 5 1/2 years ago, our first house was a tiny 865 sq. ft. 1950's style bungalow, with a yard the size of a postage stamp. But, somehow, I managed to find time every weekend during the spring and summer to work in some small flower beds and potted veggie/herb gardens. Last January, we bought a new house, with more space inside and out. But...due to some indoor maintenance issues and other expensive, and unforeseen hindrances that came our way and dried up our checkbook....other than a handful of herbs, I wasn't able to do much gardening. This year, however, I am determined that things will be different.
