Happy New Year!

Here in Rhode Island, the new year is starting off with the coldest weather we have had in quite  while: 12 degrees F this morning. We also have snow, which we didn’t have last year. The Garden looks beautiful under it’s frozen white blanket. Tiny tracks of mice, rabbits, and squirrels can be seen in the snow,  under sheltering evergreens or bravely crossing an open expanse of small-scale tundra.

In the Conservatory, it’s warm and inviting.  Sun beaming through the glass and green leaves of every size and shape are a welcome change for folks tired of the cold.  I enjoy all the seasons but it is nicer to work in the warm Conservatory in January than it is to work outside!  Some plants are growing very slowly because of the short days, while others burst into bloom at this time of year.
