Today I received my favorite plant catalog of all, Andrew’s Greenhouse Plant catalog.  I started going to Andrew’s in the late 80’s when they offered pick your own strawberries.  I also bought hay from them.  They added a greenhouse or two and pick your own raspberries and plants.  They offer perennials, roses, herbs bedding plants vegetable plants and much more.  This year they are offering  some workshops which will be wonderful.  The catalog is wonderful, no fancy colored pictures, drawings or any of that stuff, they don’t need it .  Each plant has a full description of its habits, where it needs to be planted and on and on.  Once a month when I pick up the sheep’s carrots in Amherst I will stop by with a list.  I am working on getting my whole yard full of  plants.  I will get a few more Rugosa Rose plants some perennials and herbs from them to fill in places here and there.    Take a look at their website;  you will enjoy it.



The snow is melting slowly so there is no big flooding in the barn and I am sure most will be gone by the weekend. 


Minnie has had a big day today walking all over and sleeping on the sofa.  She is feeling more comfortable now.    Today I worked on the announcement card.   I started sending out announcement card when I got the chickens.  My friends got such a kick out of it that if I don’t send them I am questioned.  Minnie’s is ready to go to Staples to be copied and made into cards.  I will post it when they come back.


Tonight I have all the grass colors out and plan to finish hooking it.  There is not a lot left to do so I should get that finished.



Hope you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.   Carole

I had to take a break and go make a pot of tea as there was a lump in my throat after reading about Oliver…bless him.
The colours of the wool are exquisite…I love shades of green!
I will look up the website for the Andrew’s greenhouse.
