What to do in Gloomy Feburary

What to do in Gloomy Feburary

Well, it’s February 2, and Wiarton Willie has predicted an early spring.  That should lighten the gloomiest month of the year.  Shouldn’t it?  What is the percentage he has been right?  According to the Canadian Encyclopedia, The groundhog is only right about 37% of the time.  But, what they get wrong, they do bring some laughter and celebration during the winter months.   At this time every year, my mother and I have a tradition of visiting our local greenhouse to get some springtime inspiration. What I call my Happy Place…a gardening centre, usually Vermeer’s or Rice Road Greenhouses.  When I walk around the feeling of spring and summer come back.  I get excited looking at the new garden items that will be out and as I said before seeds are available.  This is the first time each year I get thinking about my gardens for the summer. I always pick up hyacinths (purple they have the most scent) because once they open your whole house smells like spring.  When I was young my mother had white hyacinths on the south side of the house and I would always pick them and bring them to her.  Little did I know she would be upset because she wanted them left outside so everyone could see them.  Whenever I smell the white ones, they always bring me back to that time.
