Welcome to a new Monday series for 2019.
Each Monday I will post a garden quote with a picture or two.
It was fun doing the tea quotes for 2018, but now it is a new year with new adventures.
The first quote comes from a book I have been reading over the holiday season,
The Christmas Chronicles by Nigel Slater
It is a very interesting book about the holiday season, stories from the author
and English history along with recipes. To tell you the truth I have never read a recipe book,
but it is much more than that.
What I loved were the word images created by the author.
So here we go, a new year and new quotes:
"Underneath the fallen leaves things are happening
at a rate of knots;
new life burgeons. Bulbs are sprouting,
buds are bursting through grey bark,
new shoots push their way to the surface.
Many plants vernalisation, a prolonged
patch of low temperatures, in order to grow.
Tulips, freesias, crocus and snowdrops,
for instance.A secret world quietly doing what it
does each year. A study in renewal, rebirth, new life."
