In The Spring

"In the Spring
We are getting busy in the Garden."

The Seventh Heaven

"The Seventh Heaven"


I LOVE January.
It has nothing to do with welcoming a new year or making resolutions.
It is the time of year when all the seed/plant/garden catalogs arrive!
Let the list making begin!
Soon I will be getting busy in the garden.
That's my Seventh Heaven.

Thank you to Beth for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday.

Good morning, Snap. Neat postcards. I love the garden catalogs. I don't do any gardening in Florida but when we get back to Maine, I have some herbs and flowers.

Have a great weekend.

What's that steering wheel attached to?

Porch Days said...

Nice cards. I can see how you are getting busy in the garden. :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Love the old postcards, Snap.. BUT--I had to laugh at the way they were dressed... We certainly wouldn't wear our high heels or our fancy clothes while working in the garden, would we???? ha ha


My Little Home and Garden said...

What fun. And, may I say, it's nice to read someone who likes January! Hear, hear!

Sheila @ A Postcard a Day said...

It's a little too early for my call from the garden - I'm a fair weather gardener. :)

But I do love your cards and by then, no doubt I'll be feeling differently.

Sharon said...

I am going out to my garden to see if I can anyone getting busy. Nope! But I sure have a lot of trees down. So I guess I shall be getting busy and not in a fun way. Lost lots of my 20 yr. old Japanese Maples. an Amelanchier tree, some pines, etc. Oh well I shall just have to start again. At least no one was hurt here. I am thankful for that. :-)

Beth Niquette said...

OOooh, my! Looking at these, my knees give way.

Wow--reminds me of my darling husband when we were a bit younger...


Happy PFF!

Irene said...

Yup January is a time to armchair garden. Love your cards.

These postcards are sweet! My husband loves gardening and it kind of rub off on me now. I chuckled at Betsy's comment about the clothes - I agree with her.
Have a nice weekend.

I wish I was getting busy in the garden soon. Alas we have much ice. Little snow this year but whatever we have had was followed by rain and then re-froze. Not much for the kiddies to play around in either. Thank heavens for the internet!!!
