Winter is over in Wisconsin.  What a wonderful truth!  It was a long and tough winter.  It has worn us out and battered us.  I wondered if any plants would actually survive.  The ground had to have frozen further down this year.  But, alas, the world has turned from brown and white to green and colorful!  My new peonies are promising to bloom soon and these crocuses popped up awhile ago.  Hope springs new!

The Indoor Garden at the End of Winter

Posted on March 3, 2013. Filed under: Plants | Tags: , , , , , |

It has been a long winter.  Aren’t you ready for spring?  How to keep a smile?  Well, for me it’s visiting my indoor garden every day.  I open my terrariums and breathe the freshly oxygenated air.  I note the progress of the seedlings as I turn them away from the window so they grow evenly.  I plant some Johnny Jump Ups in some old kids’ boots. I water the grass and petunia pot in the garage from last year because remarkably, the petunia stems have buds on them!  I dream about the plant sale in May when I will chat with fellow gardeners.  The sun is stronger now and we’ll be turning clocks soon.  Hope is really alive!

I hope you’re inspired to get some green in your life if, like me, it’s been all brown and white for a long time now!  Coming up soon:  Fish Chowder, new terrariums, and more on the plant sale!
