Beautiful – but . . .

The skies are brilliant and the snow is pristine.

Krishna surveys the snow-filled Sunken Garden at dawn and wonders why there are no cows,  or milkmaids to thrill with his pipes.

But my thoughts have gone beyond snow, to sweet soil and seeds. I could not resist the display of Botanical Interest Seeds at the Farmer’s Coop in Greenfield yesterday. I will have my Castor Bean plant this year! And many colors of  morning glories and bush beans in the new vegetable patch I am planning. The mung beans will be sprouted before the next Winterfare farmer’s market in Greenfield on Feb. 6. The days are growing longer.

    Seeds, wonderful seeds… a peek at spring.

    Lisa – this is my first seed purchase – but not my last!

    It’s hard to resist buying seeds this time of year. Your blue skies look beautiful–we haven’t seen the sun in days.

    Our landscape looks like your–minus the sun and the pretty blue skies. I can’t remember the last sunny day we had.

    I enjoyed looking back at your older posts. Lots of interesting topics.

    Rose – Another brilliant day – and temperatures just above freezing. I feel I’m in the tropics.
    Marnie – Thanks for visiting – and I hope you have blue skies soon.

    I love castor bean and am hoping to start some from seed this year as well. I don’t think they need to be started for a while though. I love your view.

    Elizabeth – We are surrounded by beautiful views! And I am holding myself in check not to plant too early, but it is getting hard.
