There is nothing that feels more decadent than shuffling about my plants to fit them all in the greenhouse for the winter.
I could pretend these nasturtiums are to go with my salad greens or the herbs I overwinter or the other mildly responsible plants that allow me to feel justified in keeping the heat on.
But in truth, it is that their bright blooms from seeds worth pennies make me feel like the luckiest woman in the world on a dreary January day.
Some days I look around and find it hard to believe that the pandemic, and all that has come with it, really exists outside this world of garden sunbeams.

Thanks to online ordering and curbside pick up at our favorite local garden store I was able to dress up our window box. Now I can just see the pansies peeking through the window from inside.
We supported a local business and added instant spring cheer to the place!
How are you finding spring cheer? Have you been able to support your local businesses?
