I'm guessing that the things that you will find inside my home are very similar to what you would find in many other gardeners homes during winter.
You might find an Amaryllis or other forced bulbs blooming on the kitchen window sill or somewhere else inside. Maybe a few other houseplants, although if they are like me they do much better with outside plants.
Amaryllis 'Cinderella' has another stalk ready to come up.
You might find a terrarium, hopefully with more plants inside than this one. My husband bought this for me right before Christmas and I'm still working on how I want to plant it. I'm thinking of getting several low containers and planting plants in groups.
You'd probably see stacks of seed and plant catalogs with dog eared pages, pictures circled or maybe a plant list inside. (Maybe even a fairy door is waiting to go outside too).
You'd probably see some garden magazines and books on the nightstand for some late night reading.
Maybe baskets of garden related magazines by the living room couch. If they were like me they probably don't even throw the old ones away, flowers don't go out of style like clothing trends do, and you never know what inspiration you might find in a magazine from a few years ago.
There are probably books on shelves in the office,
books in cupboards in the family room,
books on the cabinet in the dining room,
and books on the table by the family room couch.
Then you would find the beginnings of the seed packets
that will start piling up the closer it gets to spring.
The snow is finally gone, but the rain has returned. The weather forecast shows the possibility of snow and cold temperatures again. I'm hoping to do a little outside gardening as soon as the weather improves a little such as trying to figure out how to prune our apple tree, cutting back the butterfly bush and some winter sowing. I may even toss out some poppy and Larkspur seeds soon. Until then I'll keep flipping through books and catalogs and adding to that pile of seed packets.
What do you find in your home in winter that shows that the garden is still on your mind?
