The time between
Christmas is over. The daffodils have not yet appeared. It is the time between, winter. During the holidays there is so much extra going on the garden gets by on its own, with brief forays for flowers and greenery, or filling of birdbaths. Once the distraction passes, there is not much to do besides wait. Winter in the garden means time for pruning and really not much else. We wait and watch for the sprouting bulbs. My hyacinths have doubled since I took this picture a couple of years ago. I am excited to see if I actually get 6 flower stalks. The little things keep a garden going even in the slow times.
