It felt like Spring.
I like all the seasons and would be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. But if I did, it might be spring. Less frigid air, longer days, and sunlight make everything nicer. And tonight, with the warmth lingering for another day, it seemed like a good time to thumb through my garden catalogs once again. They arrive in the mail just after Christmas and help to make dark winter days a little bit brighter. These four are among my favorites.
I especially like the old-fashioned black and white illustrations in the R.H. Shumway catalog.
I imagine that if I planted seeds from Thompson & Morgan's English Seeds I'd have flowers just like Miss Read enjoys in Fairacre.
I plant radishes every spring and these, from John Scheepers Kitchen Garden Seeds catalog are looking pretty sweet.
I long for peppers as abundant as these from Territorial Seed Company.
Soon enough the seeds I have ordered will arrive and I'll be eager to start the garden. Until then, well, a girl can dream.
