"Wishin', and Hopin', and Thinkin' and Prayin'"

Snow is flying again tonight, not entirely unusual for late April, but unusual in how often this seems to be happening this "spring."  Yes... "spring" in quotation marks.  It's hard not to feel a crippling sense of hopelessness at this point.  Of course spring will come, eventually, right?  Right?


Well, here's a photo from one of my first years gardening at our house.  We're coming into our fifth season at this place, our ever after home, and I'm wishin' and hopin' that the gardens fill out just a little more this year, that I get to grow my gardening space, and that spring truly will decide to show up!


  1. Billie Jo - we have had only a couple of nice days here in Delaware so far. More like a couple of 15 minute spans. We have not had two good days in a row. Maybe we should grow wild rice this year! Please don't send the snow our way.

  2. Billie Jo - the bleeding hearts go perfectly with the hosta!

    We got snow last night as well (I posted a picture of our deck). Spring WILL come.

    You'll have to post a picture of this same area of your garden in another month or so!

    We are in our forth season here and I'm hoping for exactly the same thing as you - 'filling out' of things.
