spring dream time arrived in my mailbox today!!
my Landreth seed catalogue came!
yes, i do know that spring is months and months away... but with a beautiful seed catalog in my cold winter hands, i can start planning and before we leave in May for 5 weeks i can get some seeds started! our wonderful and amazing housesitter/dog care person is also an avid gardener and i know she will take loving and tender care of any little plantlets that appear. and just to increase her incentive, she can take a bunch of them home for her garden!! my dye studio hasn't seen an active dye pot in months and is actually a perfect place for starting garden plants... both vegetable and flower.
i love this catalog! their photos and drawings are a work of art in themselves and the seeds and bulbs they sell have never disappointed me. doesn't get any better than that, in my opinion! there is a small charge for the seed "book" and it is so worth it that i've even given it as a gift to gardening friends. this is not a paid advert and i get no kick-back, but my advice is to get one! you, too, can start dreaming of and planning for spring.... and warm... and sun... oh my!
