Signs of Early Spring

Early spring is a time for planning gardens. . .

A time to figure out what to plant, to get the sprinkler system working, and to amend the soil.

It's the time of the year for trinket pieces from the dollar store because your heart and soul crave color!

It's the time for planting seedlings in small trays in the garden shed or greenhouse as you await warmer days and nights free from frost.

And it is a time to think about all those delicious foods you'll be eating in the summer when the harvest begins!  Heirloom tomatoes are at the top of my list.  What's at the top of yours?

I'm waiting for spring!  And for some fun days of plant shopping with Karleen.  Hurry up, spring!

To everything -- a season, and a time to every delight under the heavens...
Ecclesiastes 3:1


  1. Ohhhhh, your plantings already look wonderful. I want to sprinkle lemon dressing on them and eat them all now!

    Guess what I found in my yeard? Snowdrops! Made me think of your lovely cup with snowdrops in them. I thought, "Now our yard has them, too! Wish La Tea Dah could see them!"

    Take care. Homegrown tomatoes are on the top of my list, too! Yum. Susan

  2. Same for me ~ heirloom tomatoes and fresh lettuce! Your garden looks wonderful.

  3. It looks like a salad waiting to happen. Tomatoes would top my list, too. We've struggled with the cardboard variety for months now.

  4. Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely words of encouragement. God bless you!

  5. I am so anxious to plant some seeds outdoors. .but boy really needs to warm up a bit. Your beds are so beautiful. inspiring. Fresh lettuce cut and eaten within an hour ...that is when summer arrives.

  6. Love your post!We have had soooo much rain, that I haven't been able to get out and do anything on our property!

  8. For sure heirloom tomatoes is at the top of my list too. We will buy plants when we get home in May. Some chard is growing now and lots of garlic too. Your garden is beautiful.
