In Your Time

If you wait for spring on the calendar this year, you just might miss it. February can be a brutal month, but this year it opens with balm and blooms. I don't panic about unusual seasonal patterns anymore because I've come to understand that you really have no choice but to live in your own time and make your way in the world as you find it. This warm weather makes me wish that I had a cold frame going this winter with some cool season vegetables, so that I might reap the benefits. Now that might sound callous in a way, but on the other hand, it might be just my way of thinking about adapting.

A couple years ago I planted some crocus bulbs for some spring flowers to view by my patio door. I fear our drought may have done them in, but I keep hoping to see blooms as warm as this January was.

Well, I think many crocus come from dry regions in the mediterranean so you're probably in luck and maybe you'll be seeing them at their regularly scheduled time.
