Hello Winter

You know it’s cold when your clogs freeze.

Although it’s freezing outside, I’m finding myself geared up and excited for planting season come May and June.  My favorite winter bulb, Galanthus (aka: snowdrops or “milk-flower”) were blooming at Milo’s preschool – a sure sign of Spring (right?)! This weekend I’m looking forward to my annual pilgrimage to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show, where I go to gain inspiration and on-going education about new plants, as well as scout out additional vendors to source unique one-of-a-kind containers. I don’t know about you but I’m ready to get my garden-on…even if I’m not breaking literal ground.

As I often tell my friends, family, and customers gardening is a year-round activity. And this is not limited to the wonderland I call the Northwest. Planting is only really one aspect of gardening. An important and satisfying one – yes.  But gardening is an activity we can “do” anytime and anywhere – whether we live in an apartment, a house, or at the office. It is my belief that gardening is something that originates on the inside. We imagine, we plan, we take stock, circle our wants in those mail-order seed catalogues, and even buy a houseplant even though we are horrible at keeping them alive. We all can be gardeners regardless of what may seem some obvious constraints. This is what makes it fun and creative for me with my own space as well as helping you with yours.

So, now it’s time for you to get your garden on. Even if it is with a cup of tea and a wish for longer days…
