It dawned on me last night that the reason I feel spring has sprung is that I just received my White Flower Farms catalog. This nursery is the end-all-be-all source for exotic plant varieties and massive amounts of daffodil bulbs. Have a 10 acre estate that needs new shrubs?...need to update your begonia collection?...looking for the perfect flowering tree?...this is the place for you.
Of course, I live in the middle of San Francisco and have no garden. I can barely keep my house plants alive. But I still love receiving this catalog each spring. It's fun to imagine planting these crazy varieties and managing to keep them alive.
PS: Why does Blogger return "housewifeliness" on a spell check of "house plants." Is housewifeliness even a word? Is it an insult? Is it a compliment? Why does their spell check know this word but not the word "blog?"
