Why? Because I'm a dummy.

I did a stupid thing, yesterday.  I did a very stupid thing.

I started looking through the Vesey's catalogue.

Now, I realize that looking through a plant and seed catalog doesn't seem like a dumb thing to do, but I beg to differ.  I offer this to you as proof:

This was taken a week and a half ago.  It has snowed since then.

And this?

This photo was taken in 2007.  IN APRIL.  Do you see any leaves (green ones on the trees, I mean)?  No?  That's because we still have snow in April (see that white stuff in the ditch over there, to the right of our driveway???)!!!

Is this proof enough of my utter ridiculousness?  I have at LEAST 2 1/2 more months to wait until I can even THINK of gardening.  But I'm reading the catalogs now.  Because I am a sucker for punishment.

I was totally fine with winter.  I was even marveling at how mild and enjoyable it has been.  I've gone skiing at least four times in the past month.  I've been happy to see the sun and enjoy my dogs' reactions to the new snow. 

But that has all changed.  I opened the catalog and my new-found acceptance of this season has flown out the window.

I want this.  Now.
