Sarah of Waiting for Spring (catchy title, no?) has not only picked out her seeds, but placed her order with Vesey’s as well.

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

Woohoo and Happy New Year!
I am so pleased you added a comment to my gardening blog. Pleased because it is always good to get one (I am sure you can appreciate that) but also because it had become a little “unkept” and needed some attention. Although we are in the middle of winter, and little is happening in the garden, there is a lot happening in our plans for this year and I will be adding these over the next few weeks.
