* 26 *

It's raining, it's pouring,
The old man is snoring.
He went to bed and he bumped his head and he couldn't get up in the morning.

We love singing this little rhyme and it's been sung quite a few times today seeing as how it hasn't really stopped raining since roughly 8.45am.

But you know something, I really don't mind . Mother Nature is just giving the earth a good drink in preparation for all the green that is beginning to burst it's way skywards.

Speaking of green and things starting to grow you must pop across to this website as not only are the seeds very very reasonable but they are also giving away free seeds for schools.

I ordered these and they arrived just a couple of days later. I didn't know what was coming but I'm very impressed that they have a variety of tomato called Green Sausage !!

Guess who has been put in charge of planting all these little beauties .... looks like fun times ahead for me and all the kiddies . I was thinking of planting the seeds in used toilet rolls so they could easily be put straight into the ground or rolled up newspaper thingys . Has anyone got any other suggestions that would make easy handling for four year old fingers?

Love your first photo - looks so fresh! Is it a mock orange plant? Those seeds look good. The planting in a toilet roll idea is always good. Good luck with them!

oooh what lovely seeds! have fun!

The toilet rolls filled with compost and seeds pushed in is a great idea as long as the toilet rolls don't get too wet and start to go mouldy! (Happened to some of mine last year)! It has rained for most of the day here and a light flurry of snow is forecast for tomorrow!!!

Seeing those wonderful seeds has really given me Spring fever! I actually was able to get into my garden for a while today... bliss!

I don't mind rain either! I'm just going to hop over to that website to check out the seeds - thanks for the tip off! x

Hubs and I have just been talking about getting back out in to our veggie garden, it is a horrible mess out there but we want to try again this year to plant some stuff. Some clearing up is seriously needed first though!
