Sunny and cold

Winter finally arrived, and we have snow on the ground. The weather’s been so wacky, I’m worried the plants can’t enough rest. It’s cold, it’s warm, it’s cold, it’s warm.

It’s supposed to go up into the sixties this weekend. Which means the snow will melt, and I will rake more leaves in the back.

I’m planning my garden and growing for the coming season. I want to try lots of tomatoes again — and hope they’re not stolen. I’d like to do cucumbers and eggplants, too, but start them earlier. And plenty more pollinator flowers.

I hope, in the next week or so, to find some potted primroses in the garden center. They are always so cheerful in the winter.

The indoor plants are all doing well. The geraniums are in the sunniest window in my bedroom, and they bloom and bloom and bloom, then take a rest in the late spring until about midsummer.

What are your plans for your plants?
