I love January, December is gone - and with it all of that activity, work, and stress as we all strive to make the holidays special.

January is one of the months as a gardener that you can literally do nothing and not feel guilty about it. Of course you have to pay a little attention to water if Mother Nature doesn't smile on us with rain or snow. But other than that, we can just relax and enjoy the cold days with a hot cup of tea and some shortbread.

The garden and seed catalogs will begin arriving in your mailbox, as well as other garden and outdoor living catalogs. It's fun to see what's new with the trends in these. Wayside Gardens will tempt us with new species and varieties. We can just file these away for now - enjoy this quiet month.
