Spring is Here!Tuesday, March 07, 2006
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):
sweetness II hybrid carrots
Tennessee green pod beans
Georgia rattlesnake watermelon
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).
