Getting Ready for Spring

My Spring to-do is growing, but it is all fun stuff that I can't wait to get started on. First, of all seeds from Johnnie's and roses David Austin have been ordered!!! I can't tell you how happy that makes me. For the last few years, I've been really excited to order more Fantin Latour roses, but they are always out by the time I get to them. This time I was able to order two of their bear roots ones, plus others.

Our fireplace has driven me crazy since we moved here about nine years ago. It has this awful faux stone tile that looks like it belongs in a restaurant-- not a particularly nice one. Anyways, I'm going to try to take it off and make a new mantel for it. I believe there is just brick underneath the tile, but since I don't know, I haven't made plans as to how I'm going to deal with what I find just yet. I'll try to take pictures of the before and after to share with you. Hopefully I won't make a mess of things.

My other project is my patio room. It's been a catch-all for gardening supplies and woodworking (mine, not the husband's) which I need, but is all getting move to a shed or the garage come Spring.

What plans do you have for Spring? I hope they are just or even more exciting than mine.

Many hugs,
