anticipation

One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides.
~W.E. Johns, The Passing Show

I've been digging in the dirt a bit this morning. My mother is a master gardener...but my thumb only has a tinge of green around the edges. But I love the results of the work in the garden...love the colors & shapes of the flowers. Love how they are a reminder that the hard work...the getting dirty...is worth it.

So, hi. I'm Katrina. Some of you "know" me from my personal blog, some from message boards, some from Memory Makers. I'm thrilled to add to the blog this week. I hope that you'll stick around for the week...and see what blooms.

(and I promise that will be last of cheesy segues, really!)

Gardening is something I wish I enjoyed. I love how the finished product looks, but I hate getting dirty. And the unpredictability of it makes me a little crazy. Any plants I have grow in pots and (almost inevitably) have a short life!

Hi Katrina!

My father can plant veggies and my mom could work magic with flowers, but somehow I missed the green thumb. The only thing I can grow is herbs and even that has it's moments! And I HATE weeding!
