Digital Two for Tuesday 216

Finally, the weather is starting to warm up. I have my seeds started in the basement and I am anxiously waiting to plant them in mid - May. With seeds on my mind, I went to the flea market today and ran across the stash of the lifetime. I found seventeen vintage seed catalogues from the late 1800's. I am hoping to scan them all, then sell them, as they were way to expensive to keep.

Here are the images from the first one. It is a 1893 New Guide to Rose Culture Abridged Edition.

 

I was so lucky today to receive an email with this beautiful card made by Sherry Hickey with an image I posted awhile back. Sherry is an amazingly talented artist. You can read more about this card and see more of her work on her blog. http://www.bitsofcheer.blogspot.com/2014/05/april-showers-at-cards-in-envy-last.html
