Last week we got our tomatoes seeds planted for our Summer garden. I’ve still got all our garden seeds organized in our seedling packets that I designed a few years ago. They come in handy this time of the year when we’re trying to decide what to plant. It’s such an exciting time because the inactivity of Winter is being replaced by the busyness of Spring preparations.
The newly planted tomato seeds will have to stay inside a few months until the weather warms up, but it’s fun to see them sprouting already. We keep them in the 18″ window sills of our old farmhouse so they can get sun but be protected from the cold temperatures. I completely agree with Edward Giobbi when he says, “I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature’s rebirth?”
In the meantime while we’re waiting for buds to blossom outside, I’m enjoying my artificial cherry blossoms. I’ve had them for years, and their delicate pink color makes me happy as I anticipate real blossoms. My Mom also made this adorable Spring stitchery that she just sent to me. It looks great next to the cherry blossoms!
How do you decorate your home while you wait for Spring to arrive?
