The Joy of a Seed Catalog....in January

With January quickly coming to an end, it's time to start planning this years' vegetable and flower garden.
I know it must sound silly, but I actually get giddy thinking about the new seed catalog. Do you get excited thumbing through the pages?
Yesterday, the much anticipated catalog arrived !
I started ordering my seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds when I still owned the farm. Click HERE, if you would like to order their free catalog, or just browse the online catalog.
So tonight, after dinner, I will begin my 2015 Garden Plans. I know my eyes will be bigger than my budget.
What fun it is to grow something new from a faraway land, like the Kajari Melon. It is believed to originate in the Punjab region of India.
In the meantime, I still have a few herbs growing.
Even with the temperatures dipping in the 20's, I have managed to keep parsley, cilantro, chives, and sage growing. I simply cover them with a large clay pot, protecting them during the night.
The Iceland Poppy (Papaver) offers some cool weather blooms.
Also, the ornamental cabbage thrives through the cool nights.
And best of all, I will soon have a pot of blooming narcissus
to cheer me on....

Awe Inspiring Ancient Temples for InSPIREd Sunday

Today's photos are on loan from my youngest daughter and her hubby. There are over 2,000 Temples and Pagodas on the eastern bank of the Ayeyarwady in central Myanmar.
All of these photos were taken while they enjoyed the famous Balloons Over Bagan, Myanmar (Burma).

I find myself mesmerized with these photos...trying to imagine how my daughter felt floating above such an ancient site.
