Mild winter days are perfect for bringing home a plant. A ‘grocery store’ primrose is just the ticket to satisfy my craving. It is actually in the sink window but I’m not tall enough to get a shot there. I’m always amazed what one little flower can do. It cheerfully sits there bounded by covered dove bowls transforming the gray woods beyond. The window is perfect for the primrose where it is safe from winter’s cold but in the coolness it prefers. Even in the window there are some overhead can lights directed toward it. Ah, isn’t that better? It’s spring on my windowsill and in my heart.
I just ran across this preview of The Garden In Winter you may enjoy. Be sure to hit the plus button to enlarge. I’m always looking, as I’m sure you are, for winter bloomers and sources so I may add them to the garden. Plus I just like books. I have a gardening book collection, of course, that pretty much fills the bookcase. 🙂 When it is too cold to go out and get a plant we can read about them, can’t we? Feel free to add your favorite book of winter gardening.
