One sure sign of Spring is all the seed catalogs arriving in the mail. I love the old-fashioned flowers best--cosmos, hollyhocks, lilacs, snapdragons and most of all, sweet peas. One of my favorite catalogs is from Fragrant Garden Nurseries .
~When finally the last carols have floated away into the starry darkness, the last good night has been said, the last wrapped package laid under a shining tree, there comes a small, quiet enclosure of time for every person to be alone with Christmas. ~ A Farmwife's Almanac of Country Living by Rachel Peden
I am a wife, the mother of four grown sons, and Nana to four grandchildren. I work part-time as a librarian/ archivist at a university library. I enjoy knitting socks and mittens and other items for charity, reading, hand quilting, growing old-fashioned flowers, and bird watching.
