  2. Jeanine, it is like you are reading my thoughts. I scrounged in my garage last weekend for some treasures - an old teapot and and a plaid cooler, then I went to Milagers for a look see in their greenhouse and brought home a Gardenia and a lavender plant just so I could plant something. At least in smells heavenly inside until the snow starts to clear from my deck and yard. Looking forward to your sale in April...it can't come soon enough.
