..start getting a little longer..just a minute or two...
I start to think about the garden, what will I grow this year? How will I lay out my veggies? I take a look at my favorite seed catalogs, http://www.saltspringseeds.com/ and http://www.westcoastseeds.com/.
Do I have time to add a new flower bed? Probably! Will I have time to maintain it? Probably not!
Do I have time to plant one rose? Probably! Will I have time to maintain it? Probably!
So I won't make a new flower bed but I'll plant a new rose. I adore roses, and want to get a rose garden started, one rose at a time. Not sure yet what kind I'll plant this year, but it will have to bloom continuously, be fragrant, and disease resistant, am I asking too much?
But...two things I look forward to the most...
Time on the lake with friends and family.
and backyard barbecues under the grapevine.
