This seems an odd time to start writing about gardening. I look at my yard and struggle to picture how it will look this spring. I try to visualize a raised bed filled with strawberries, another of asparagus and raspberries, cucumbers and tomatoes scattered throughout my gardens. But all I see is snow and ice. However, I am looking forward to spending some time today in front of the fireplace reading seed catalogs and the first of several gardening books I was given this year. I have just started to look over "Landscaping with Native Plants of Wisconsin" and it looks interesting. While reading, I can almost picture how the Ostrich Ferns I will plant this spring will look in the corner by the fence.
