January always makes me feel gloomy, a little bit. The leaves are all blown from the trees by the wind. The first freeze took the life out of most plants. Everything looks so grayish-beige in the yard. But I always find a way to fix it. Today, I went to the nursery and picked up some seasonal flowers. This afternoon I planted them in the greenhouse. And now, I’m happy again. Between all the sad looking gray and beige, there are some dots of color. And when it gets really cold outside, the flowers are tucked in a warm greenhouse bed.
