Spring Fever

I’m having a hard time thinking of things to write. I have a really bad case of "Spring Fever". The seed and garden catalogues are coming in the mail. I feel like the guy who’s new issue of "Big Uns and JUGS, just came. The sun has been shining, heck we even got up to 45 degrees the other day!! I feel the frenzy, the excitment, the lure of the Green House and Nursery. The seeds, the bulbs, the bareroot roses, oh the heady rush! lol  It’s time to get out my basket of gardening/bonsai tools, make sure they are cleaned, sharpened and well oiled. Hmmmm well oiled, now that thought leads me down a WHOLE other path, but, it’s still connected to Spring Fever! I don’t care what that stupid Groundhog saw or didn’t see. Spring is just around the corner, and I’m ready! BIG HUGS, Steph

    We have a seasonal cabin that we can\’t open up until the ground thaws and the freezing weather is all gone. This means that every month during the winter, we have a mortgage, utility, and tax bills to pay on a place we can\’t even look at. Usually, this time of the year is really hard for us. It feels like winter has lasted so long and yet summer is still so far away. Not to mention having all these psycotic children running around indoors, busting at the seams with energy because they can\’t run around outside when there is a foot of snow in the backyard.
    So, it appears that I too have spring fever. Or would that be considered cabin fever….I don\’t know.

    I like it when I can post something and see who will respond and who will not, I know that most people who believe in ghost will not be interesting on leaving a comment, but what the heck, if they believe then they do, I wish you could have conversations with past loved ones, but then they wouldn,t be dead would they?

    Oh Kit – Nursery Catalogs are like porn to me too!  Let me put you onto an awesome mail order place I have used – their stuff is twice as big as any other for the same quoted size – the stuff is relatively cheap, but the shipping is higher because they will only use proper freight methods (so it equals the cost of a decent product that is higher priced in the end – but it is better quality than anything else I\’ve ordered).  I have had awesome results!  It is forestfarm nursery – they won\’t even ship unless it is the right time to plant stuff – and they caught it when i hit submit twice and checked before sending – very classy operation.  And speaking of Spring Fever, I may have something well oiled on the line myself – wouldn\’t THAT be nice!  Soon to find out…  Some of don\’t subscribe to \’Jugs\’ – but probably have no issue with the occasional issue of \’Big \’uns\’.   Tell 1Kathleen that you\’d be more convinced that "it works" if you weren\’t seeing \’no name\’ after her comment…  Oh we are snarkin\’ today…

    You have me wanting to feel that "spring" feel. You will never imagine how much you miss the seasons (even winter) until you do not have them anymore…sniff…

    It was practically balmy here last week; lows in the high 20s, highs in the 40s.
    This morning, it was 0. And we\’re now five days into what is typically the snowiest month. I can tell this does not bode well for planting anything outside, except possibly my ass on the sidewalk. And taunting me from just outside my kitchen window is our boat, all bundled up and looking positively FRIGID, yet beckoning me to a warmer time.
    I hate winter. Considering the fact that I grew up in Northern Iowa, then moved to Minnesota, it would seem that something is amiss.
    I\’m telling you: the SECOND my youngest son graduates from high school, Husband and I are marching out to our awaiting U-Haul and hauling our asses South. Preferrably Arizona, but anywhere South will do. Hell, at this point, South Dakota looks warm to me.
