Thursday Thrill – The Garden Holds Her Breath

Up to now, the Garden around us has been hushed, her breath quiet and slow. Blankets of white pulled up to her nose she waits, still asleep, for that first itch of movement when once again Spring calls her name.

When she does finally take her first groggy stretch, we will be ready with our boots, seeds, aprons, and tools to get her ready for her big day.

Because in the blink of an eye or the quick turn of the head, Spring will be here and ready to take our sweet awakened Garden to her big debut.

Then all we'll have to do is watch her grow and thrive into the destined beauty we knew her to be and gather up the roses laid at her feet.

So start unwrapping your warm weather clothes now, for you don't want to be caught unexpectedly when the dear Spring reaches out his friendly hand to you too.

  10. You always pick the best things! I want both pairs of boots, the veggie bag, and that dress...oh my!

    But I have to say what I REALLY want is for flippin' Spring to show up. It's being far too lazy to get it's butt in gear this year.

    We got hit with yet another snow storm and I am soooooo over it already. Beyond over it. I want out! Let me out of this winter wonderland!!!!

    Okay...thanks for letting me vent : )

  18. Since we have been in Canada, I have so missed having a proper garden. I have started house hunting now as we are due to move this summer, and a beautiful garden has jumped right up to the top of my list after reading this. Oh, and a pair of those boots you featured as well!

  21. I know everyone is looking forward to Spring. Although I am really loving the idea of Spring fashion I just am not ready to let go of Winter. I love those spoons they would be adorable in a garden. My family has already had gardens.
