Spring has Sprung!!!

Spring has Sprung!
Well, I did put my shovel away .. and so of course we had snow showers today ..  its ‘Murphy Law’.
The year 2011, started off running ..  and here we are .. its Spring already.!

After a very ‘snowy’ winter, the Spring Season is such a joy.  New beginnings, watching Mother Nature .. as all the plants, trees and flowers are waking up after their long winter sleep.

I’m excited to dig in the dirt .. and have already gotten my planters ready for the herbs and flowers that I will be planting this year.

Even if you do not have land to plant .. you can always do a container garden .. and actually, I have most of my herbs in my half barrel planters.

From Rosemary, Sage, Chocolate Peppermint, Peppermint, Spearmint, Lemon Thyme, Sweet Italian Basil, Holy Basil (or Tulsi as it is also known), Thai Basil, Cinnamon Basil .. geez .. yes indeed ..love all the Basil’s !!!

Letting the younger children walk thru and sniff and touch these wonderful fragrant herbs.!!
The look of wonder on their faces!!!

Have you thought about what you will be planting this season??

With what they are doing to our foods .. it is so important now more then ever, to ‘grow our own’ if possible.!!!

Under the Radar ‘tick’ diseases spreading across the US.

With the nice weather fast approaching and everyone wanting to be outside .. 

please be aware that ticks are a serious problem. 
Especially for your children and pets if gone undetected and untreated.
