A True January Day!
This week we have had tons of rain, winds that will take you off the ground and some of that beautiful white gold...Snow!
Nothing more beautiful than a tree covered in snow and colorful birds nestled in the branches. We have an abundance of Cardinals, Bluejays, Finches and a few Buntings.
I try to get up close photo's, but as soon as I go outside they all take flight.
Yes, ladies I have been spending a bit of time with my seed and plant books. It's that time of year!
I am also planning to try some new types of Basil, and yes, there are so many.
Of all the ones I have grown so far, the "Genovese" is my favorite. It's just an all around easy variety to use. Very hardy and just makes a beautiful plant.
AS you can see here: This was after it had gone to seed. It just did not want to stop growing!
I am starting to get the planting itch.....and it is toooo early!
Have to find more books!
See you soon,
