Signs of Spring
A cold but sunny Saturday morning brings thoughts of a change in the season and signs of Spring on its way in the garden. To celebrate I bought these seeds at our local bargain basement shop yesterday. There are lots of disadvantages to being a gardener - wet feet, all that back-breaking toil and those slimy garden pests! - but we are an optimistic lot, planting and sowing in the hope of good things to come.
I may not quite get the results shown on the front of these seed packets but for a small outlay I can look forward to sowing the seeds on some warm Spring day not too distant, and dream of a carpet of blooms in the garden this summer.
And while surfing the net this morning I found a new to me stamp shop, Make the Day Special. I fear I may be spending much time and money here in the future! However today I was restrained and ordered just one stamp set from Flourishes. I just love these realistic looking bees and when they arrive can create some summery projects at my craft desk whilst I wait to hear that friendly buzzing in the garden again.
