Why I Love Winter time in the Midwest!

Snow flakes drift down, the wind howls, logs sizzle in the fireplace where our Golden Girl, “Rosebud”, is warming her bones….and I am having a glorious time planning fun things to do while waiting for the sweet smell of Spring.

Pintrest takes me to a place of dreaming and planning for busy days ahead.  I have saved my favorite ideas to my boards to share with all my garden friends.  I have ordered beautiful “3 Sister” quilt fabrics from a new on line store called Shabby Fabrics.  Soap making supplies have all been collected and will soon be made into bars of soap smelling of lovely lavender.  I’ve made a list of “have to have” new perennials and ordered more “Casa Blanca” and “Star Gazer” lilies from a favorite mail order nursery, “White Flower Farm”.  Their smell will draw all those who pass by to stop and smell.
