You two are so sweet.  Give your guys a hug from me.  Yes, gardening is theraputic.  There something very soothing about the smell of freshly turned earth, and getting your hands in it.  And very hopeful and exciting to plant a seed, and watch it grow and bloom, and fruit.
I did save some of the seeds from my buterfly weed.  I plan to scatter them on the steep bank in my back yard, so that DGD and I can raise more monarchs this summer.  But I'm sure I could spare some.

Mmmm, I love the smell of freshly turned dirt.  I planted about 500 bulbs in my front yard back in November and that smell made me realize that it was probably the last time I'd smell it until Spring.  That's so sad.  I'd love to live someplace where I could garden year round, but then again, I'd miss winter too much.  Besides, winter gives me an excuse to spoil my houseplants rotten.  Ha ha.  I say that as if they're my kids.

Funny you should mention it because I came home to most of those catalogs too!  Great stuff!

Gah! I need seed catalouges! My DH and I decided not to move this year after the first frost so I didnt get a chance to plant any bulbs. Im heart broken. By the time we move out of this duplex, its going to be a butterfly village! Thankfully my hubby is big into plants (he is going to school for botany) so as long as I keep the species non invasive, he is a very happy camper. He ran around Tennessee last summer on an intership with the USDA tracking invasive species. I never knew how bad some of the stuff is. Kudzu, the vine that ate the south!!!

You should order as many catalogs as you can.  It helps to beat the winter blahs, I swear!!!

Hi all! Odd no one's yet mentioned the good ole T&M seed catalog, Thompson & Morgan....??
[[[EDITED to add ::: oooops age must be gettin the best of me, at least in regard to eyesight, lol -- sorry, GloryB, you did mention T&M!]]]
Anyway...
Just in-general/ overall, I do believe I've had the best luck with their seeds than with those from anywhere else.  Also almost always found some amazing varieties that weren't available, or were unusually hard to find, anywhere else. 
[[I no longer do this much at all but for many years I was an absolutely *maniacal* indoor-seedstarter.
 Adorable hub -- to whom I too had to go & give a big lovin squeeze! -- built or otherwise devised numerous different seedstarting areas in other homes for my lil um "addiction" -----
then here in our 'retirement house' we ended up with a truly enormous unfinished walkout-type basement, so he  finally felt inspired to go "whole-hog."  ...
Big heavyduty floor-to-ceiling shelves fixed up with rows of daylight fluoro tubes & handy outlets for the heat mats; big workbench or 'potting table' (plain wood door-cabinets & drawer-cabinets topped with long laminate countertop); plus more heavy-duty shelves for the soil & other bags, the trays, the small pots, & all sorts of other stuff that needs storing; even a big ole 'laundry sink' for watering, cleanup, etc.
Really a great setup, and actually it turned out to be the least-expensive among all the other things he's done for me elsewhere over the years.]]

Ayn,
Thats fantastic!!!! My DH suprised me the other day with my first mini-seedhouse. I bought seeds at the dollar store for impatients and a few veggies.

Has anyone else seen the plant called Fantasy in the Burpees catalouge? It starts with a "p". Perillium I think, anyway... I need it!!!

Oooh, a walk out basement.  I have one, and I just love it.  No carrying wet laundry up the stairs to hang it out on the line.

Baker Creek has some really amazing heirloom seeds. The owners take trips all over the world to collect rare seeds--but they aren't too expensive and they are so much more interesting than the same old seeds you see in everyone's garden (not that there is anything wrong with those!).

I grew heirloom tomatoes last year and they tasted so amazing good. I can't wait!
