A new year beginning, and soon the garden and seed catalogs will arrive in the mail.  

How I love to sit next to a fire and look through them and dogear the pages, planning  for spring planting!

It's always so much fun to see the new introductions of plants that I have loved in the past that have been stricken by bad weather or pests.

And then there is the fact that the garden is always changing.
Last year we took down 2 large oak trees as did some of our neighbors.  That has added alot more sunshine in a space that I always thought of as a woodland  garden.  Some of my hostas actually got burned, so I know I will be moving them and replacing them with something that can handle the sun.

That is the lovely challenge.  Seeing a need for change and addressing it.   The same with life, it seems.  The more things change, the more they stay the that an oxymoron?

My very favorite catalog is White Flower Farm, and their plants are terrific.  I have never had one fail.  Can't wait for it to show up in my box sometime soon!
