There are two seasonal diversions that can ease the bite of any winter.
One is an early thaw.
And the other is the seed catalogs.
When the seed catalogs arrive in the mail,
(which is usually right after Christmas!)
the dreaming of the gardens begins!
Oh! How much pleasure can be derived
by leafing through page after page of beautiful
flowers and vegetables.
My garden never looks so good
as it does in my mind’s eye
while I am dreaming!
In the vegetable garden-
Some new things that I would like to try this year;
(can you believe that I have never grown carrots?!)
(my first try last year, and I was pleased with them!)
What are you dreaming about growing this year?
Song of Solomon 4:16
“Awake, O north wind;
and come, thou south:
blow upon my garden,
that the spices thereof may flow out.
Let my beloved come into his garden,
and eat his pleasant fruits.”
