I here you, I am ready to be outside and get to more garden related activities. Though I do enjoy a nice warm fire and reading all the garden magazines I have kept over the years,


Well.... a sunny HELLO to you, Beth! It's nice to see you back on your blog. Spring is finally in sight and I am soooo glad!

Hi Beth, It it so nice to see you posting again. I was worried. Sounds odd, I know, but it's amazing how much you begin to care about the nice people you meet online.

My mood has really gone south in the past few days. Winter needs to be done now. I'm occupying myself by wintersowing and doing way too many containers as usual, but this is just making me even more antsy for spring.


Hi Curtis, Connie and Jennifer --
It's so nice to have you visit and say hello! I am happy to be back on the blog. I started a new job as a church musician (in addition to my teaching) four months ago and I've been busy getting settled in. I love it! I also just haven't had gardening on my mind since it's out of season here in PA. I should have put up a "see you in the spring" post but it just didn't happen. Thanks so much for coming back! Anyway, I am REALLY looking forward to spring. We actually had snow and ice yesterday and last night, with all the local schools closed today, so I spoke a bit too soon in my post above. But I'm R-E-A-D-Y!


It was good to see a new post from you. It sounds as if your winter was fairly mild. Spring will soon be here and we'll all be out in our gardens again! Then blogging will begin in earnest.

Yeay!! You're back! Can you tell you were missed?


Beth is back! Yeah! So good to "see" you. I haven't felt much like blogging either. Tulips, daffodils and crocuses are peeking out the ground now. Maybe we will have some ready for Easter. Glad you found a job you like, wishing you much success. Greetings from Germany, Andrea


Hi Kate, WG and Andrea! Thanks for your kind words. It's great to be back and great to hear from you!
