It came unexpectedly – a large package from my brother in the Midwest.  And inside……garden scrapbook 001

A glimpse into a gardener’s soul.

Like many, I am longing for signs of spring.  My Witch Hazel survived the winter storms and is blooming frantically as if to make up for lost time. garden scrapbook 013 2 crop

And inside, this suddenly appeared in our breakfast room,garden 002 crop started by my teenage daughter who apparently is walking in her garden-loving mother’s footsteps.  Seed packages are closely examined and organized – which ones shall we try this year?

The garden, long neglected over this snowy winter, is calling to me.  I dream of seeing my antique roses bloom, of smelling delicious scents of lavender and lemon verbena, of hearing the bees buzzing as they go about their work.  Time to dig in and get my hands dirty!

Happy Spring everyone!
