"In the Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt."

It's a bit too early, a bit too wet, but we can dream.  Fabulous selection of vintage seed packs that inspire--all the way from St. Francisville, Louisiana (thank you to our best southern picker!!)  Easy to frame, to stick in a flower frog or pin to your inspiration board.  See the current issue of 'Country Living' for more ideas.
