Much as 2015 was a very good year, as we reached the end, I was getting tired of it and wanted CHANGE! The gardens had been mostly put to bed and that is a gloomy time for me. Add to that my need for cataract surgery (making driving with kids unwise), the surgery needing to be delayed, my husband’s change in Parkinson’s medication…well I was less than cheery.
Next was the neighbour removing a huge amount of privacy forest to build a new home. Sigh. We had just planted a large shade garden before their work began without warning. I think this will eventually work out, but soon after the trees were downed, a storm caused trees on our property to fall. One of the large ones prevented us from leaving our property and also broke the power lines. All this is pretty much cleared up and I am looking ahead to spring planting and watching new plants emerge.
January is the time for early seed starting and plant orders. I have been doing my research on “must haves” and enjoying every minute of it!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
