Flown the coop

It's the same every year. The Christmas decorations come down and almost instantly my thoughts turn to the garden. This is problematic because the earliest I can start working in the garden is early April, and that's if all the stars align and we have an actual spring (something  that is almost unheard of in this part of the country).

That makes for four very long months. Sure, the seed and nursery catalogs have started arriving and those are good to lose oneself in for awhile, but that only sustains a gardener for so long.

I have found the best cure for gardening fever, not to mention cabin fever, is a bit of time away. It's really only delaying the inevitable gardening obsession, but I suspect it's aids in sanity maintenance.

So I'm off for a little jaunt to the south for a work-related trip that will be so fun it will look more like a vacation. In fact, by the time you read this it will be half over. I doubt I'll be able to post while I'm gone (spotty Internet is usually step No. 1 in a good vacation) but have no fear, I'll be back soon and ready to talk gardening. Aren't we all?

So ... I actually wrote this post on the plane on the way down and have been trying unsuccessfully for four days to get a picture from the journey in it. Sadly, it's not to meant to be (spotty Internet, what a great problem to have on vacation) so you'll have to do without. Be back soon!
