Time seems to be picking up speed as the years fly by, but what a great time to take a few moments to reflect on all the blessings of the year gone by and ask God to draw us closer to Him in the year to come!
January at our little spot in the country is a time bursting with promise of the seasons to come. There are tulips popping their heads out of the soil in our windowsill bulb pots, the hyacinth will soon be blessing us with fragrance, and daffodils will be jumping out to say, “Here’s a little sunshine for your table on a winter day”!
Easter Lilies are out on the tables and beginning to find the light of day as they emerge from the soil and ‘winter’.
The Wheat Grass is up and treating us to a little perky plant to add a mini ‘lawn’ to a fun pot. HINT: makes great ‘hair’! Come and see what we’ve done…
As usual, there is foliage on our tables to clean the stale indoor air in the home or office. Check out the fantastic work foliage does here.
We’re so thankful to the Great Creator for making plants, not only for their beauty, but also for the way He’s made them with the ability to clean the air around us (one reason outdoor air is so ‘fresh’ is that trees, grasses and other plants are working silently to make it that way).
During January, we’ve begun the Great 2012 Makeover at Green Valley Garden Center and it’s truly an exciting moment in our history to showcase our plants and what we do here in an even better way. Come visit us and let us delight your senses. Watch our EVENTS page for upcoming classes and ‘happenings’ leading into spring.
