Freezing cold. This is typical beginning for January in Ohio, a little later than usual, but now it feels like winter. It looks like one of those years when whether one mulched the roses will make a difference.
Though I am not much for diaries, I have always been a list person. Lists help me think, but more important for me, help with accomplishment. They keep the direction and focus. Some people need that more than others, or maybe they just like to make their lists?
Things like that. These are good for journal entries, so some of it may even find its way into the garden journal online, here.
It is a way of making the cold cabin fever days pass with a feeling that each season has its purpose. A way to be thankful for the quietness and restrictions of the winter.
