We certainly cannot complain of lack of snow this winter! And while I do love the look of trees after a fresh snowfall, when the sun shone down this afternoon and I could hear the sounds of melting snow dripping, I felt so ready for spring!

A new (to me) grow light sits in the basement waiting for seedlings, and I shuffle and reshuffle the seed packets waiting for the right time to start them. Oh, I cannot wait!

This year will see tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, beans, peas, greens, and herbs, and also a handful of flowers. Zinnias, French marigolds, beebalm, cosmos and sunflowers and purpletop vervain (Verbena bonariensis) will come to the garden this year. And just to get me really ready for some sun and warm soil I looked through some pictures from last summer…little Mausi digging away and Cub snug on my back.

I don’t quite believe that we have seen the last snow this winter, but I do believe that spring is around the corner, and I am ready!
