Hope Springs

It's that time of year: the early morning sun just skims the hardwood floors and kitchen floor...highlighting the dust and crumbs that winter grey hid so well.

But, on a more-positive note, the wheat is looking all pretty and emerald out in the fields.

After two summers of drought, I told myself (and anyone who would listen) that I didn't want to plant ANYTHING this summer.  Too hot, too dry, too dusty.

But I find myself perusing the seed catalogs and garden sites online.

That Spouse o' Mine brought out the chainsaw this weekend and cut down the two once beautiful, now-dead willow trees out of our back yard.

But he says we will replace them this spring.

Playing Bocce underneath the willows:

Was it the drought that took the willows? My strawberries are currently 4 inches under water. Yikes. Let me know what seeds you need. I have too many. Might just send you some anyways.

Yes. The drought.

Wow, it's spring in Kansas. How can you not look at the seed catalogues?
