Winter interest in the garden

December can be a tough time for us gardeners. The colorful displays of autumn are now extensive long gone, and at to start with look what is remaining can be a boring grey world. The pleasure of our get the job done can also be hard to occur by during this time. Tulips and daffodils have all been planted (you did plant that final sack of daffodils, correct?), and the mail carrier still has not introduced these seed catalogs we’ve been eagerly ready for.

It can also be a attractive and contemplative time for a gardener. It can be a time for braving the cold and getting walks via our gardens, neighborhoods and neighborhood. My spouse 1st got me into going on wintertime hikes a long time ago when a single afternoon she abruptly stated, “Come on. We’re going on a hike.” In a blanket and pajama cocoon, I elegantly replied, “Huh?!?” We have been taking pleasure in winter hikes ever considering that.
