Getting A Little Dirty

Every year at this time I come down with a bad case of the gardening bug.  It slowly builds up inside me, an ocassional thought here and there  . . . turns into an all consuming desire to dig my hands into a bag of potting soil.  

No Tools . . . No Gloves
  I can't deny myself the pure bliss of gritt under my nails and dirt stained hands.
I know - - I'm weird.
Kids think I'm crazy - - but I'm cool with that!

Happily I fill tiny planters and creamers with wheatgrass seeds.  Larger containers are filled with spring blooming bulbs.

Before I know it the pretty display in my kitchen window is replaced with field of plastic wrapped containers.

To most it's not a very pretty sight, but to me . . .

It's anticipated beauty and I love it.

Hope you have a great day,


  1. I love dirt...the feel of it, the smell of it...the happy results of adding seeds or bulbs to it! Can't wait to see the beauty! Much love, Lisa

  2. Oh, I love your plastic covered gardens. I bought some wheat grass last year, but I think ti would be much smarter if I just planted my own. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. What a great idea Robin!!~ I'll have to try this in some of my white ironstone.
    Hope you have a lovely afternoon.

  4. Ooh, that is such a neat idea! The combination of white and green will be magnificent! Perhaps I should give this a try?!

  5. I have the digging bug, too. We are supposed to have great weather this weekend so I hope to be doing some gardening. Great idea with the pots, so cute.


  6. I was wondering why the little planters were covered with plastic. How cute those will be.

  7. Good for you! You will have such a lovely display in your window when they begin to pop through the soil!
    Hugs, Cindy

  8. Every year I think about planting too late. Thanks for the reminder. This year I might have some for Easter. Mimi


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
