Okay, I know it is still February. And I know it is still winter. But come on! I am tired of the cold... as I write this it is 9 degrees and there is a wind chill of -8. I am tired of the snow... we had 3" last night. And I am tired of the wind blowing!

I have searched web sites for plants and seeds for this year's garden. I have my lists all made out.. my wish list and my " okay, I'll pare it down to this" list. I even have plans sketched for new areas in my gardens...maybe chicken scratchings better describes what I have drawn.

I have thought about, talked about, written about, and read about the garden. I am getting tired of thinking, talking, writing and reading about the garden. Soooo, what do I do now?

Does anyone know sorcery, witchcraft, voodooism, divination, soothsaying or magic? Maybe we who are still in the grip of winter could stand outside tonight under the lunar eclipse and yell "Hoo-di-hoo"!

Now that I am done whining, I will tell you that Robin of did a beautiful collage of flowers and butterflies on her blog. That got me to wondering if I could do something like that. I am very illiterate when it comes to computers and what they can do. I probably only use 5% of what mine could do. Anyway, I did manage this through a scrapbook program that comes with my printer.

Maybe someone, upstairs, will see it and know that I am ready for spring!

This is a wonderful collage Beckie. I want to be able to do this. You will have to tell me how, PLEASE.

Wasn't the moon awesome last night? Too darned cold to be out there long though.

I too am ready for spring. I think most people are getting to that point.

Well it cheered me up looking at your lovely colourful collage. We are still saying "Yes, its spring"eh wait "no it isn't". At the moment we have just changed to "Yes it is" I don't know where I am, goodness knows how the plants and wildlife are coping. As for witchery.....I have been called a witch because I use a lot of herbs and plants for medicinal purposes. I hope they are only joking though!

Thank you, Thank you!!
