January wonderment

The ghosts of last summer feed the soil, and life begins anew.
Bulbs shoot forth green, and the cherry blossoms redden.
Baby rose leaves appear while pansies continue to  bloom in defiance of this mild winter.
And as spring works her way toward us, we have worms composting our food scraps in the basement, sheet mulched raised beds absorbing nutrients, wine fermenting in our basement, beer brewing and carbonating, compost rotting in bins in the yard, seed starting class scheduled, and dreams of bees.
