Happy 2011 and hopefully this will be a better blogging year for me and a better year in general!! The LORD has been good to our family this year and has provided... hopefully my husband will get another flying job soon... luckily he has been working with my brother in law doing home construction and additions etc... he enjoys working with him and says he learns something new everyday!! Hopefully all my blogging friends will not keel over with surprise that Im actually blogging today.. setting here with a delicious cup of green tea and enjoying the warm wood stove!! Im really starting to miss Spring and the growing season... Im cooking up some new ideas with flowers and thinking of making a bigger vegatable garden this year... and I had so many delicious herbs last summer and didnt preserve any of them.. my bad.. this year Im going to make that a priority.. I had a very big clump of lemongrass.. smelled delightful tasted wonderful and I let is die with the first hard frost.. hopefully Trayers will have another start for me this spring... I saw it the grocery store (McCormicks) and for a few very tiny pieces if was close to $7.00!!!!!! Highway robbery!! LOL!! Im going to enlarge my succulant garden this this year its getting to be a pretty nice size... the older I get the more I love them... Trayers also has a nice selection of succulents to choose from... she always has lots of different things the mainline stores dont carry.. she also has a huge selection of coleus.... the most beautiful around!! I would like to start a small knot garden.. but we are thinking of putting the house on the market in March...so that may have to wait till the next place!! I hate to leave all my perennials.. but I guess a new slate would be cool too...! Does anyone else have some dreams for the upcoming growing season?? Im sure you do! But for the time being get out those seed books and gardening books and set back and be an armchair gardener and Spring will be here before you know it!!

  1. Wow, Beth I never thought you were ever going to blog again so glad you started. Just in case we don't get to see each other at the hookins. We can keep in touch on our comments.... You are exactly like my mother flowers and gardening was her thing, but it is not for me. I kill everything. I either underwater it or overwater it so I let my husband take care the plants.... I enjoyed your blog. So keep it up!

  3. Wow Beth, it sounds like you have a lot planned for the Summer! I'm afraid we won't see you much then, so you BETTER get to hooking more often before that garden gets started. OR..... you will just need to get your gardening done during the week so you can have Thursdays off to relax :). Sooo glad to see you blogging again !
