Please share it here.
One of mine is to visit a local plant store, and buy a few seeds or bulbs. Seeds and bulbs are so full of HOPE for the near future. They promise a lot.
Today I bought a pack of 3 Star Gazer Lily bulbs and planted them in a big blue ceramic pot.
In zones 8-10 Oriental hybrid lilies like Star Gazer lilies can be planted January to March. Star Gazers are 40 inches tall, thrive in part to full sun, have huge sensational bright rose flowers, and are scented.
Is this not a package that has everything?
Let me know your secret tip for finding some moments of joy in this month of January which is rather dark in the Northern Hemisphere.
Cheers to my friends in India and Australia too!
