A Bit of Spring in January

I did a post sometime back about my favorite place to sit and write in my house.  The photos here were taken in that room. The photo above is a recent picture of one of the Coleus starts that I took from my plants in the yard just before the weather got too cold for them. 

I’ve mentioned before that this room is a favorite of mine because of the beautiful light that it gets.  Apparently, my plants agree with me!  

You would think that it’s Spring instead of the middle of winter, in January, from the way my plants are acting.  

These starts are in water right now, but will be planted into pots with soil and transferred back out to my yard in the spring.  

When my plants are happy, it makes me very happy.  What a gift these beauties have given me!

  1. I absolutely love a light-soaked room, and your plants look beautiful—and happy! How wonderful that you bring them inside for the winter, nurture them and any new babies, then transplant them back outside in the spring.

  2. Your coleus images are coming into my office with a definite feel of spring as I gaze outside to a snowy landscape and rain, yes, rain, falling. I see why this space is your favorite. The light is remarkable.
