Winter is a good time to grow a few blooms in the house, wouldn't you agree? Apple Blossom amaryllis put on a good show for me in early January.
After it faded, I added a few grocery store primroses to the window ledge garden. When spring comes, I'll plant them outside.
We only had a little bit of snow this year, and even then, it melted quickly. I'm always glad for that.
Eventually, it turned back to winter temperatures. But the gloom is deep. We haven't seen the sun in quite some time. I've been busy crafting this winter, mostly crochet projects. I've been churning out afghans, for no particular reason other than I find them soothing to work on. It's also a good time to cook up pots of soup, and settle in with a good book. I did keep one small geranium at the end of the summer, and its small flowers remind me that winter won't last forever. I always try to remember that a time of rest is a good thing too.
Quiet days aren't so bad. It's nice to settle down, take a deep breath, and just relax. Garden days will be back before you know it!
