Is it Spring yet?

I am getting ready.  Elaine at Rosebank Ramblings wrote this week about sweet peas. Hers were so pretty I was inspired to by some sweet pea seeds today and some zinnias seeds, too, as I browsed the the fruits and veggies in the super market.

Then the cut hydrangea called to me: "Take us home with you."  So I did.

The cut little curly chicks called out too.

 At Big Lots, a favorite bargain spot,  I found new gardening gloves and don't you love the rubber clogs that I found at Jo Ann's?

Spring is just weeks away. Patience, my dears. Patience.

Have a happy weekend.


  1. I love your clogs they are so colorful and pretty. I also love your vase there. With sugaring started I feel spring is just around the corner.

  2. I bought some seeds this week to. I may have to read about the sweet peas, I have tried to raise them and they do not bloom?
    Great vase too, is it a hull or roseville.
    cute chicks too!

  3. Looks like you have been busy snapping up bargains too - thanks for the mention.

  4. I love your display, Ann. You have inspired me to start decorating the house for Easter! By the way, that vase of yours is gorgeous and I believe it would be quite pricey at the Antique store!! Also I have been thinking of planting sweet peas and zinnias, too. I have good luck with zinnias, but have never tried sweet peas in Florida.

  5. A lovely little display. The shoes are fab! Suppose Easter is around the corner and coming soon!

  6. I DO love your clogs, Ann!
    Sweet peas. Yes, I must plant them soon.
    Won't we be doing the fairy dance when spring arrives? Hooray!

  7. They closed the Big lots, the one near Boulder that is.
    You got some great deals. Love the shoes/clogs.
    I hope your sweet peas grow good for you!
    Please feel free to come to my Green elevations Family blog since I closed down Dung hoe recently.

  8. I have no patience, but I have seeds...what a gardener I am. LOL.

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog Ann! I am feeling very impatient for spring to arrive too. Ah, sweet peas - that fragrance is the BEST. Look forward to following your garden here.

  10. Patience, Patience, just keep repeating that for me please! Your seed packets, gardening clogs, hydrangeas all just make me want to grow something besides mold in the refrigerator! Those cute little chicks would be something Max would love to chew on too! Have a great evening!

  11. What a pretty display! Spring is here in Texas! Love those rubber clogs!

  12. Ann, you had a very successful shopping trip. I love those chicks and the garden clogs are perfect for you spring planting. It won't be long now!

  13. Hi Ann,

    This is a great gardening vignette! I must tell you that I do love Sweet Peas and Zinnias, but I've never tried planting them from seed. I'm going to have to try it. I had a wonderful flower and herb garden at our first home, and I found Zinnia plants a the garden shop. Those I can do. :)

    I want to thank you for your comments you left on my Reynolda Gardens post last week. I'm sorry I'm so late to reply, but I've had kind of a rough week. Nothing serious; I'm sure next week will be better.

    Hope you have a great weekend!
