I mentioned last week
That I was ready for a rest
From the garden.
That is true.
It’s part of the rhythm of gardening.
But the real truth is it never really stops.
There are plants that I drag in
To carry over to spring.
This year its Plumbago
And Foxtail Ferns
That will require watering
And watching over.
And sweeping up of all those dropped leaves.
Then there’s the Christmas cactus
That Kristina gave me a few years back
That will be bursting into bloom soon.
There are hydrangea drying
Soon I’ll have Amaryllis to plant.
But it’s a slower pace inside.
A cozy place
Even though I don’t really enjoy cold weather.
I do have to admit
There are parts of winter
