Pink. Orange. Purple. Of course, purple!

Green. Lots of green.

Yellow, and some magenta. After all, how would it be if we didn't have a whole swath of magenta? Goodness, I shudder at the thought!

Fuschia, definitely. Not too much -- you know it can get hard on the eyes if there's too much fuschia.

Oh! How could I forget? Lavender! Loads and loads of it, so much it makes your eyes water, just heaps and heaps, waves and waves of laven--


Me? Oh, nothing much. Just planning flower beds.

Got piles of seed catalogs scattered on the table, an order pad and a pencil. Just made a pot of coffee and there's a fresh bag of Oreos in the pantry. Yes, I'm ready for gardening. Doesn't matter that it's fifteen degrees outside. In here it's hot and sultry, and I'm surrounded by color.

Later, I'll get on to that pesky book that's waiting for the final few chapters. But now? Gardening. :)

Oh, gardening. ::sigh::

I love gardening. I love the finished result. It's so pretty and bright and the memory carries me through the winter.

Once all the flowers come up, take pictures, please!

A bag of Oreos, hmm? Necessary for gardening? I'll have to remember that!

I knew I was missing something!

I love looking at other people's gardening projects. Yeah, we would love to see pictures of your garden.

Gardening is on the agenda over here in Oz too - only I'm not doing it this time. Yep, when I get home from work tonight I'll have colour...lots of colour...BLACK peat and karri mulch spread throughout. The pretty stuff will come when I get around to it.
Pictures of your garden in the spring would be nice though.

Oh, I am SO READY to start gardening. Now that a little bit of dirt is showing in my yard, I'm getting really itchy.
