Gardener's porn anyone?

Now that's what my DH calls my gardening catalogues that are starting to arrive in my mail box........ Ah, the joys of leafing through all the new plants, trees, shrubs, especially when there's 2 feet of snow on the ground In the evening when I'm outside playing with the dogs, bundled up in my snow gear, I will close my eyes and picture the new gardens that I've got planned.
I LOVE my gardens and since I've only been on this property for 1 full summer, most of my gardens are still in the planning stage.
But I DO love the catalogues My gardening zone is 4....and naturally lots of the stuff I'd love to have is zone 6 or 8
Hmmmmmmm, maybe a greenhouse needs to be those plans

Yep, I know that feeling....can you imagine this...I have a house in the middle of a hayfield (actually 35 acres of hayfields!) and I conservatively figure I have 2-3 acres that I can 'garden' to my heart's content! Last year I planted 12 new lilac bushes, 4 cedar trees, and 1 blue spruce...
Where an old barn once stood, there is a rockwall foundation that I'm planning to convert into an 'outdoor' living space..with a gazebo, and of course, lots and lots of flowers.
There is also an existing 'stream' of sorts and we hope to evenually have a large pond.. Boy it's fun to dream
