First Hint Of Spring In The Mail

November 30, 2012

Do not get me wrong.  I love winter, and look forward to the long days of snow and cold.  I like being ‘forced’ to be inside at this time of year, as there are many projects I enjoy completing.

But having said that there came a smile all over my face when I picked up the mail today.  The first seed catalog for the new season was delivered from Mansfield, Missouri.  As it just happened we had a friend from our block who lived in  Cape Girardeau drinking tea at our kitchen table.    We all smiled when I mentioned the catalog was described by The New York Times as “the Indiana Jones of seeds.”

In 211 pages of high gloss color the arrival let me know there are days when green grass and warm lake breezes will again dominate the outdoors.
