Say aah…January is almost over

I guess it is impossible to rush time, since time just ticks along a minute at a time, regardless of what we do or do not do. I found myself saying “thank goodness” this morning that January is almost over. This week seems to have been more trying than any of recent memory, including loss of friends, family, the incessant cacophony 24/7, and the cold and rain and lack of sunshine. But…

The jonquils, daffodils, and irises are raising their stems, buds are appearing and soon the hillside will be awash in tones of yellow, white, and purple. I will eventually get the path started and the dry creek built–literally too wet to do so now. Meanwhile, a little color from Atlanta Botanical Gardens beckons.

  2. Yes! I am happy this is the last day of January! We don’t have the beautiful flowers you do (thanks for sharing) but it is mild. I opened all the windows in the house and it smelled like fresh sheets drying the the sunshine. Then I went out and dug in the dirt. Ready to work with my plants.

    Beautiful pictures! Sorry you had such a rough January. Your Spring is so close. While it can’t heal everything, sunshine and warm temps do help the spirit, I think. Enjoy your Sunday!

    Ah, yes! As I read this the first day of the new month is winding down, sunset is approaching. To me it seemed that January just floated by, one day after another. I’ve had things to do, but last night as I said goodbye to January my heart told me to say hello to getting my feet back on the ground and welcome reality. The flower pictures are lovely, we’ve had a mild winter which has not helped the sleep cycle of plants and the riddance of bugs. I’m waiting impatiently on my amaryllis to show some sign of blooms which, hopefully, will come despite the warm weather. I think they are floating.

      It does seem rather strange to me that bulb-based flora will bloom when it is still cold out. I hope your amaryllis will bloom and look forward to seeing it when it does. I hope you get your feet back on the ground also.
