Beautiful morning sunshine is coming through the windows. Milder temperatures, creeping up the thermometer are making me happy! Lots of spring bulbs are popping up around the yard. Is it really Spring? It must be, I just received a beautiful catalog in the mail for spring bulbs. The bulb people know how to do it...because if I had the funds, I would order just about everything in the book!! Order now, plant in the fall. My husband always grimaces when these catalogs arrive. Or when I say: "I'm off to the plant nursery".
I am beginning a Special Project this spring. Besides my regular garden plantings which include veggies, herbs, perennials and annuals, I am planting flowers for use in my daughter's wedding. The wedding will be taking place outdoors, at the old Irish castle, Beardslee. To pretty up the event, my daughter asked if I could make planters of flowers to place around the area where the ceremony will occur. Naturally, I am happy to comply. It will be a pleasure to grow flowers for her wedding and I will track the progress of the Growing on the blog.
