It all begins like this.
I make my pilgrimage to our local garden center.
Somewhere between December and February and while most
of the garden center is a ghost town there are always a few
stragglers who refused to leave in late Fall.
Like this reluctant lavender and white pansy who was shivering and
nearly alone on a weathered wooden shelf.
I am fairly certain there had been many opportunities to leave, but
she stubbornly stayed behind.
You know, I am so glad that she did...
Lucky for her and her sunshiny yellow friend that I came along-
I saved them from a random snow storm.
Lucky for me, they were happy to join us in our home- it was a
win, win for us all.
Who could resist a deal of under two dollars-
for this bright and sun loving Kalanchoe-she has such a great
attitude no matter what time of the year.
I nestled her between these two anthuriums-
which refuse to quit blooming no matter where I put them.
Who knew they were such resilient plants -
I adore this ceramic pot-such an earthy piece of art.
She was another lonely and forgotten resident of the garden center
who refused to leave before the North wind blew so fierce.
I secretly believe she was waiting for me.
What do you think?
I have missed my Winter Windowsill Garden more than I realized-
I am so thankful I have her back again.
