Vernal Equinox 2016

Gardening is cheaper than therapy and you get tomatoes.

~Author Unknown

I don't know about you, I am ready for fresh tomatoes and herbs from the garden.  It is time to get my fingers in the dirt.  Right now, it is snowing but I am looking at seeds and dreaming.  We have been talking about the greenhouse and trying to plan where everything will go.
We will still be putting in lots of different cherry and grape tomatoes.  All of us miss the colored jewels that graced the family table last summer.
I am looking forward to the rosemary blooming again.  Summer garden dreaming, on such a snowy day.  Homemade pesto :)

“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”

― Mark Twain

Last week, the first week of March, our Queen Elizabeth rose decided to put out leaf buds.  I really need to get it pruned.
Rose is the theme.  My friend, Vicki, gave me a wonderful present, a rose scented geranium. the scent is wonderful, I am ready for Spring.
The Rosemary made it through the winter! It has a new little buddy from Vicki's shop, a concrete bunny.
   
While I was there for a visit, she broke off  a bloom from her pretty camellia.  There was enough that I am trying for a groot.
