Windowsill Victories


I need something to grow—especially in January.

These eyes of mine  need  to watch the slow greening of a bulb and 
the little-by-little, day-by-day emergence of life


And when those roots power down, even enough to lift the unsuspecting bulb 
up and out of the soil ... somehow a tiny bit of the victory belongs to me too.

My kitchen window is populated with post-holiday, clearance bulbs  
each coming to life at the appropriate time and at the perfect pace.
I'll keep you posted on the small victories occurring in my kitchen window.

Are you growing anything in the bleakness of January?
Send a photo and share the joy!
