Sunny and 67 F on  February 14th.  If you and yours celebrated Valentines' Day, I hope you had a wonderful time.  Mr. J&C and I tempted each other with chocolates.

Over the last few weeks I've gotten several seed and garden catalogs so I know that it is wintertime.  I love that every year, in the dead of winter, I receive these beauties...

I love to look through them and dream.  I have learned by sad trial and error (and who knows how much money!) that all I can do is dream - and plan.  I take my time wishing and hoping and finally, when I'm ready to buy and plant, I take my pictures to my favorite local shops and buy.  They have plants that may survive in my area and it makes more sense to buy plants that have a fighting chance.

What's tempting you this week?

Yes, those seed catalogs have the most tempting pictures. And I wouldn't be able to stay away from those chocolates! I was tempted to quit my diet completely - and I gave in! :O)

I hear you about the garden catalogs, they are a vexing temptation.
Have a great weekend.

In my 20s I wished my way through Victoria Secret's catalog; in my 30s I wished my way through Toys r Us flyers; in my 40s - yup, seed and garden catalogs! So glad I found your blog. -- Jan
