I know January seems early to think of Spring arriving, but hearing the robins sing each morning makes it hard to get stuck in the winter doldrums. Today we had an exceptionally warm day and took advantage to play outside for awhile.
I hope it's not too late to plant spring bulbs - I put in a few tulips my sister-in-law gave me last summer. While digging in the dirt and cleaning out old flowerpots, I found basil seedlings sprouting! What a fun surprise! I gently dug them out and repotted them. They're living indoors with us now, and I hope to have a great crop of basil in a couple months!
