Flashback to Gardening

Here is our garden last May, ready to plant...

I'm sure you remember we had tomatoes in August... 8 feet tall!


Now we have snow! Will I ever see the soil again?

What happened to all those beautiful perennials I grew from seed? Are the heirloom Poppies ok? I can't remember what we decided to do about the vegetable garden space this summer... something about only 2 tomato plants? No green beans? Double Sugar Snap peas in rows? Sheesh I should have written it all down! I can't wait to be outdoors again.

After the blizzard that was last week, Spaz and I brushed off our cars and sat in the snow bank on our front lawn with our faces turned to the sun and waited for the plows to finish our parking lot. It was glorious and we laughed ourselves silly when we couldn't get out of the drift. Those moments sitting there in the snowbank with him and that sunshine... delightful, wonderful and completely enjoyable...

Here's my progress this week on Heinzit's ABC Sampler...

At work yesterday I met a lovely lady who is a member of the Snowbird SAL, Lynn, it was great to connect a name with a face and I look forward to stitching with you too! Your CDC is gorgeous, thank you for sharing it.

Have a wonderful day. Try and do something nice for someone else... the world needs more nice!

I imagine you must have a lovely little garden with your background! I should have you out in the spring to help get ideas to cheaply fill in all the beds I have and keep the weeds to a minimum! I always start gun-ho and peter out as the summer goes on!
