2015? Does it ever feel right when the New Year rolls around? Have you planned your spring garden? Getting ready to set out the broccoli and the sweet peas and the crocus. DO plant 4 or 5 times as much in the way of sweet peas - the vegetable, not the flower - as they are indescribably good, and very few people will share! YUM!

Toad lily seed pods - scatter everywhere!

It is deep January.  The sky is hard.  The stalks are firmly rooted in ice. Wallace Stevens,  No Possum, No Sop, No Taters


tiny hydrangea buds just forming

seeds for the beautiful blue ageratum - it can pop up everywhere but it is beautiful and it's blue and it shows off in autumn.

The twelve months...
Snowy, Flowy, Blowy,
Showery, Flowery, Bowery,
Hoppy, Croppy, Droppy,
Breezey, Sneezy, Freezy.

In order to set the calendar right, the Roman senate, in 153 BC, declared January 1st to be the beginning of
the new year.  During the Middle Ages, the Church remained opposed to celebrating New Year's Day. 
January 1st has been celebrated as a holiday by Western nations for only about the past 400 years.
