If you are anything like me, right after Christmas and New Year celebrations you immediately start thinking about spring planting. Well, a fellow blogger, Flowery Prose, just helped me to remember what winter is for – a time of resting.
There is a time for everything, including resting, this is what winter is to me.

Now, don’t-cha just love the time of rest – wooo hooo!
