Dreaming Of Spring

The snow has melted and thankfully we are having a brief respite from the deep freeze. Seed catalogues are stacked next to the fall issues of fashion magazines that honestly, need to be tossed. When I saw this image in Vogue from a story on my neighbor Emilia Fanjul Pfeifler’s weekend home in Locust Valley, my first thought was, time to consider the garden.

It’s certainly too early to put anything in the ground, but it’s never too early to plan and dream about what to plant come spring.

  • Drooling over seed catolgues at this time of year is therapy.

  • I agree…puts the winter in perspective as part of the cycle.

  • I’m already putting seeds in starter pots – they will be just the right size to put in the ground when Spring is here and it’s actually relaxing to play with the potting soil, labeling all the pots, and etc. Also, the feeling of virtue that arises afterward is so rewarding!
