I know I don't have to tell all you gardeners out there how excited I get when my orders arrive, but just in case you are not a gardener and are reading my blog think of it like a long awaited Christmas gift or maybe a shopping spree at your favorite shoe or clothing store. That is how excited I get!
I read each package and then stare at the picture (if there is one) dreaming about the plant growing in my flower or vegetable garden. I make notes on when I will plant it and where it will go. These are the first steps I take each year when planning my gardens. I envision the flower blooming in my "minds eye garden" and what plants will be planted around it.

A nice rain has been falling all day today. I here my plants singing out....
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
