Thinking spring

Several things have me thinking of spring while it is the Persephone period and bitter cold in Minnesota.

The first seed catalog has arrived this week:
Two recent finds at the thrift store have a garden theme:
Set of four salad plates with an orchard theme (above) and a large pasta serving bowl with heirloom tomatoes (below).
A Christmas gift from my daughter and son-in-law will hopefully help discourage some rabbit nibbling.
We are a zone 4 so our last frost date is May 23.  A little early to begin counting down the days or starting the seedlings but not too early to start planning and dreaming.
Not even close to a tablescape but some pictures of dishes so even though it is a stretch I will join Tablescape Thursday here.


  1. We are buried under about 10" of snow as I type this and it is still please, dream away of warm days, naughty nibbling rabbits and those seeds. I am all ears!! :)

    1. Oh no. I am sorry you have so much snow. We have been having a cold patch and usually that means it doesn't snow. It is going to warm up a bit so maybe...

      Last years garden was so disappointing but I am determined to be optimistic. Hope your weather improves.

  2. Thank you so much to come and leave a comment for my review post. You have a beautiful blog. Love those Spring plates. Happy New Year to you. Hugs Sujatha:)
