My friend Jo and I spent a lovely morning together yesterday. As usual, we started out with breakfast at our favorite little cafe in Graton - they serve excellent coffee there and the scrambles are delicious as well.
The latte is served in real bowls, no paper cups here. That's the way I like it.
After that we were ready to visit one of our favorite nurseries - I know, it's only February, but we both love to garden and just wanted to "look".
The nursery always displays their stuff so nicely - our dreams could take off!
One day I will have a little pump like that in my garden!
I was good - I only bought a beautiful columbine and a small trellis that you can put into a pot. But in my head there are many colorful dreams of a beautiful garden this year. Every year I can't wait to get the garden going. The calendula are beautiful and rich right now, and since we have unusually warm weather the peonies are already on their way out of the soil. I have been trimming trees and cutting back old and dead branches and twigs, preparing the way for new growth. I feel whole when I can work in the garden and feel the soil between my fingers.
Are you a gardener? What are you planning to grow this year?
