Spring Fever!!

So every year about this time, I get a huge case of Spring Fever!! I feel the need for warmth, sunshine, color and most of all.... flowers!! As many of you know, I love flowers. I can't get enough. Since I was a little girl, I have loved gardening. I get it from both sides. My maternal grandparents are 85 and still work in the garden! I had my wedding reception in their backyard and it was beautiful!! My fraternal grandparents always grew delicious fruits and veggies. So I feel like it is in my blood. I think I do a pretty good job, but I know that I have a lot to learn.
But back to spring fever... I am craving plants. I can't plant anything outside yet. It's too cold. But I must fulfill this important need somehow. So what do I do? I plant seeds! I start my own little seedlings now, to plant outside later. Brian hates it, because it means that our kitchen is full of little containers of dirt for a couple months. ( I have been starting my own plants every year since we got married.) But I love it! There is nothing like seeing a little green stem pop out of a little container of dirt!! Today my cosmos popped thru. My cucumbers are about 2 inches tall now. I am still waiting for my four o'clocks to grace me with their presence. I may not be able to have a full fledged garden now, but my little seedlings are holding me over until I can!
I have also been planning out what I want to plant in my beds, pots and hanging baskets. So many decisions!! There are so many flowers and combinations that I love! It makes it so difficult to settle on things!
All in all, spring is just around the corner! I can't wait to get my hands dirty!
Here are a few pics from last year's garden....

Oh, boy. Will you come over to my yard because I seriously need HELP!! I don't think I have anything "green" in my DNA and my yard shows it. Love all your plants and can't wait to see what you accomplish this year.

That is way awesome! I wish I had a knack for that. I have always wanted to have a garden...maybe some day. Oh and Harrison is the cutest kid ever! He is so big. Oh, and Megan I just wanted to tell you that I am going on a mission and I got called to the Baguio Philippines mission! I am so excited and you are totally welcome to come to my farewell. I am not sure when it is, but once I find out I will let you know.
