I'm So Excited, And I Just Can't Hide It

Lately I am overcome with excitement about Spring. All winter long I've been plotting and planning what I'll do when it's time to get back outside and now that I'm seeing seed starting stuff for sale (even at Walgreens - WHAT??) I'm getting so antsy I can hardly stand myself.
New patio
Painting the ugly brown house trim
Plants from seeds
New raised veggie beds
New front garden beds
In addition to all the things above that I'm looking forward to, I'm also beyond excited to see what my charlie brown shrubs look like. Not only that, all the perennials I planted last year should look a lot better this year. And, I've started so many seeds that, even a fraction of them grow, I have the potential to have full, lush garden, without spending much money on plants at all. YIPPY!
In other gardening news, GB is ordering fruit trees and I'm getting in on it. Millers has a special on a set of dwarf cherry trees so she'll order those and we'll flip for them.
My mind is just racing with all the Spring awesomeness to come! I'm sure you are just as excited as I am.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got more seeds to start.

  1. Excitement is good, Gina! It's also contagious, although we're still too swathed in snow and ice for me to get too excited about the spring. Many articles and talks to prepare before I get to plant anything....
