i like....

Primroses in winter, because they give the promise of Spring....


Cruddy clay pots, waiting to be filled....


Plants that, in spite of neglect, still manage to live...


Old garden tools, especially awesome blue ones....


And dirt.

You know you're a gardener if a picture of dirt makes your heart pitter patter.


Dear Spring,
Please, please be on time this year. I will be eternally grateful.
Sincerely,
Meadowbrook Gardener

  1. I love clay pots all stacked and ready to be filled, and dirt as well, I love the smell. I can't wait for the weather to warm to get out and start getting my hands dirty.

  3. I guess I am a gardener because I feel the pitter patter at the thought of diggable dirt. I lose all track of time in my garden. The best therapy I can think of! Thanks for reminding me that Spring really will come again! Your photos always make me smile.

  6. Me likes all the things that you likes. I often buy a bag of potting soil at this time of the year, just to feel it, and smell it. There is NOTHING like the smell of soil. Shoot, I'm almost wanting spring to come early this year, and my winter project list is still undone! Darn you!
