from the Garden Squad mysteries by Julia Henry
Now, mind you, I live in New England. So I can't actually do any of these things for a few weeks. But today marks the day I can dream about them. When I go to the Triple B, I can place a plant order. My greenhouse moves into seedling production mode. I get out my colored pencils and my grid paper and plot what is going to go where this spring.
Now, as if to tell me to hold my horses, Mother Nature has a N'or Easter planned for us this Thursday. But never mind, even that can't stop me from looking through seed catalogs and discussing my garden plans with Delia and Ernie.
This is the happiest time of the year.
The Garden Squad series is written by Julia Henry. The first in the series, Pruning the Dead, was released in January. The second in the series, Tilling the Truth, will be out this August.
