Spring is Here!

Ah, Spring is here! My pretty camellia is blooming:

….and the peach tree is blooming:

…and I’m getting in the mood to do the big ‘closet switch-out’ and replace all my sweaters and dark pants with Izod shirts and capris!

I’m really behind on ordering my seeds for this season, but here’s what I’ve ordered now (seeds & plants)…

From Burgess Seed and Plant Company (all plants):
2 Climbing Hydrangea
4 Sum and Substance Hosta
6 Rose of Sharon Hedge
1 Chinese Wisteria
1 Climbing Corkscrew Shell Plant
3 Elephant Ears
1 Giant Purple Clematis
3 Snowball Bushes

From R.H. Shumway (all seeds):
birdhouse gourds
sweetness II hybrid carrots
Tennessee green pod beans
Georgia rattlesnake watermelon
giant sunflower
cowhorn okra

BTW, the R.H. Shumway is *the* most beautiful seed catalog – they have the traditional-style line drawings and nice descriptions….I keep it around just to look at all year!

We’ll get our tomatoes and herbs (and anything else that looks good) at a local feed and seed. I especially like Bonnie-grown tomatoes (plus the company is based in Bullock County and is owned by the Alabama Farmer’s Cooperative).

Yay Spring!
