I love all the garden posts! I have been slowly catching my moms green thumb and gardening itch for the last few years and have been out almost every evening with my son digging new beds, turning over old ones and checking plants. Its great exercise and it is so good for the soul......

I had to work on the equinox... but the day after I went to visit my hometown and my old house. It has just been finished with renovations after the flood of september 2011. I spent the day clearing out all my herb and flower beds of debris and whatnot. Looks like only a few things survived and I'll have a lot of replanting to do come May when the local stores get their plants in. Started some Sweat Pea, Basil, Calendula, Sunflower, Lunaria, Echinacea, and Flax seeds. Also put the 106 year old grapevine back in order as the waters tried to rip it clear out of the ground.
Got a nice tan too doing this... :) All in all a good celebration.
"...and heroically stripping her down until she's bare, like the roses whirling in freedom. But even if the two of us should be separated, I will change the world.
We will be celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday. She was born on the 21st and it had never matter what any calendar, almanac, sky chart, etc has said...her birthday is the first day of spring. Always.
