Spring Fever

Thanks so much for the kind words and prayers from all of you. It was a very hard week, this past week. Brandon will be missed so much.
Last night dear husband and I went out to Lowe's in search of some "parts" my husband needed. When we walked in I went straight to the garden department, like I always do and low and behold, they had garden seeds out! Well, they weren't really "out" just kind of shoved in a corner waiting to get "out". So, I decided to help them along! I just sort of moved some "stuff" around so that I could get to them. I'm quite sure they appreciated my help! Anyway, I bought several packs. I can't help it. It's an addition. Then we went to Target, and they really did have some seeds out with no help from me! I bought some more! So this morning I went into the garage and pulled out my box of leftover seeds from last year and have found that I could probably open my own seed store. But then I remembered I bought some seeds when we went to Monticello last summer and I can't find them! I'm thinking I'm not really that early. Because in late February, I will start some of the seeds indoors on the "seed starting" shelves my husband made me a couple of years ago.
Oh, and guess what? It snowed this week! Not alot, but enough to keep the kids out of school. Remember, I live in the south and if we see one flake of snow we are required to run to the grocery store and buy milk, bread, and toliet paper and then close all the schools. It's a rule!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Now you've gotten me thinking it's time to go look at seeds . . . a ritual similar in excitement to buying new school supplies *s*

You sound like my father in law. He loves gardening and he always has the biggest and best garden except this past year due to the drought.

We had another snow this morning. In Georgia we do not get much snow but we had snow on Wednesday and again today (Saturday)

Seeing all of your seeds has got me thinking about spring now! I better go checkout some stores for seeds of my own. Man, this winter is going by so fast.

You are so funny about the snow and going to the store, LOL. Here in Indiana we have to wait until over 6 inches before school closes.
I am glad you can think of spring, it is still a while off for me:-(
Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see your tags! Come back again!

Glad you are back online. I'll keep the family on my prayer list for a while yet. I know from experience what they are going through.
If you are starting seeds in Feb. I'm guessing your growing season starts real early. I've only gotten as far as reading the catalogues.

How exciting to get new seeds! I would like to start some indoors this year. Do you have special lights or do you just put them by a sunny window?

So sorry to hear of your friends sons passing. Death is never easy, but ever so hard when its a life cut so short.
I was talking to my husband about getting the garden ready for planting next month. Can't wait to play in the dirt again : )

Linda, people are the same here too. My husband worked in a grocery store for years and everyone got crazy when there would be snow in the forcast.

You are a lady after my own heart. It never fails, that in the middle of the freezing winter my heart turns to my gardens, seeds, bulbs and sharpening the shovel!
I have a bag of seeds waiting for Spring, and I am going to check our seeds companies on the internet.
Sisters of the spade we are.
