NINE days! Count them NINE days until the first day of spring! However, that means nothing where we live. There is still a foot of snow on the ground in areas around here. Last year it snowed off and on until the first week of June. I really hope that does not happen this year! I am very excited about getting our garden going. In years past I've had a tiny 10x10 foot plot, but it's in a bad place and it's no where big enough. This year we are going to do a much bigger one. We're still deciding where to put it, but it will happen.Even though the flower beds are covered in snow, I'm very excited that my bulbs are starting to sprout and poke their heads out of the snow. I only hope the snow is all gone before they decide to bloom!
This afternoon Hailey and I started zinnia seeds in a greenhouse. I have always loved zinnias and they remind me of my grandmother's garden. She always had the most incredible flowers, especially zinnias. It will be fun to watch them sprout over the next few weeks. Maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to keep them alive into the summer!
