I'm thinking Spring...

I have been seriously noticing the signs. Bud swell, Red Winged Black Birds, Sparrows taking a bath. You can even see the white color showing on the snowdrops on State Street. Spring in January.

I have been unpacking boxes and boxes of goodies for the store. I LOVE everything I have unpacked so far. This bodes very well for me. It means I am still in touch with the person who ordered all these pots, furniture, garden bells, vibrant fabric pendants 6 months ago. This season brings a return for me to my original business plan. The original business plan that called for a venue of creativity.

This year Living in the Garden is focusing on the creative class. We spent the summer searching out handmade products and buying from the artist directly or through fair trade companies.

I start the greenhouse in 2 weeks and I can't wait for the plants to arrive. I know then, it will be spring.
