Howdy-doo!!!


Isn't this a pretty cutting?

I listed this last night on ebay...

I painted the frame for this piece, and ended up chip-carving
some motifs into the corners of the frame...it came out SO old looking!

I can't wait for my tulips...my daffy's aren't even up all the way yet
and here I am dreaming of tulips...
well, not just tulips.


This year, we plan on putting in a little cottage/kitchen herb/rose garden
in the front of the farmhouse...
little white picket fence,
...the whole shebang.

I'll get glorious climbing roses, all varieties and colors...
rosemary, lavender, tyme...oh I can almost smell them all now!
and garden antiques...can't have a garden without some PRIMSICAL
garden antiques...urns, pots, benches...birdhouses and...

CHAIRS!

can you see them?



I found these two, skeletel remains
of what once were (and in my opinion, STILL ARE!!!)
BEAUTIFUL
wire garden chairs...
rusty, peel-y, bent....
PERFECT!!!!!
I bought them both at our
local Animal Shelter Thrift Shop
for......
$2.00 each!
They're so structural, yet
almost invisible until you're right on them...
(which is why I'll coat them with clear protector and
place a potted geranium on each seat...)
I don't want anyone tripping over them and breaking an ankle!
great find, huh?

We'll be planting our potatoes & onions by St. Patricks day to ensure a good harvest, then our peas and cabbages will go in...then I can start thinkin' about tomatoes....

What are your Garden Plans this year???
