When I was just a little sprout I learned this ditty: Spring has sprung, the grass has riz, I wonder where the flowers is? Well my grass is still dormant, but the sap is rising and I have hundreds of snowdrops blooming on a south-facing slope. Spring is here.
With spring comes a desire to get my hands dirty and to start planting. It's still way too early to do anything outside - the ground is still mostly frozen, after all - but planting seeds indoors satisfies my urge to garden.
