Spring WILL Come!

Winter seems like it's taking forever this year! I may just feel that way because winter started a lot earlier here and is colder this year for us. But, I am convinced Spring WILL still come.

I am so convinced, I couldn't hold it in any more. I went in at the garden entrance at Walmart this weekend and picked up some plants. I got a white baby Hyacinth and a yellow/orange baby Daffodil. I plan on repotting them in bigger pots soon. They are only the start of my plants this year.

Now that I no longer have a cat, I can get some indoor plants too. I can't wait!!! I love plants. I only have a problem with putting plants in the ground here. You would think they would thrive in the ground with all the rice fields around us growing rice, but no they just shrivel up and die. I even tried plants I got off of QVC that are 100% guaranteed to grow anywhere! They shriveled up and died too. Now, I plant everything in pots. Even my tomato garden is in pots every year.

So to continue with my pot theme, I got a herb garden kit for Will and me to do together. Yesterday we started it. We pulled out all the cute little pots and put the dirt and seeds in them. Now they are by the window for sunlight. (He keeps asking, about every thirty minutes, if they had enough sun and started growing! He is such a silly boy!!)

This is going to be a great learning experience for him. I hope they do grow to be some awesome plants. Here are pictures of our new plants.

Sweet Basil, Sage, and Thyme


  1. Such a cute idea! I've always wanted to grow my own herbs! Think I just might this year :)

    C'mon Spring!!!!!

    Have a good night :)

  2. I have to pick up my herbs soon. My parents got me a cute little stand for my porch!

    Did your cat eat the indoor plants?! haha
