It began a few weeks ago; the gardening catalogs started to arrive in my mailbox. Two more came after I took this picture.
I’ve been stacking them next to my clipboard of graph paper and my three-ring binder. That binder contains all my past years plans, old plant tags from annuals and perennials purchased, photographs of gardens and shrub beds I’ve constructed. And oh, there might be one or two torn out pages of ideas from home magazines.
Really that binder? It’s half dream book, half reality. I love looking back through it.
So, it should go without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: I really enjoy paging through the new catalogs that come. They’re full of such inspiration, possibility and hope for a good growing season. Plus, what better way to spend a ten-degree morning in January? Can’t think of one here…
Let the Armchair Gardening Season begin!
Tell me…Do you garden? Are you happy with overflowing flowerpots of beauty or do you have a huge landscape/vegetable garden project in the works? Have these graced your mailbox too?
