“January brings the snow,
Makes the feet and fingers glow.”
That is how the poem begins. But for me, the best thing about January, is primroses. The holidays are over and it is still winter. And here in New England, it will be winter for quite a while. There is nothing green and living anywhere to be seen. And then magically, cheerful little primroses appear in the grocery stores. How can you resist? I can’t. I would never get through January without primroses.
I repot them into nice clay pots with some new soil and put them everywhere.
A sunny table..
Even the loom room got some.
Hopefully they will keep blooming until Spring. Then I will bring them outside and plant them. They don’t mind a bit of shade so they love the edges of the woodland gardens. And there they will stay, returning every Spring…adding their cheery colors to a time of awakening life.
And for now, they will be a reminder of that time. A bit of life in a lifeless world…
