Sunday we honored the shortest day of our year. It’s winter solstice in San Jose.
Do you know what that means?
It means that spring is only three months away!
Seriously though, you have to look a bit harder for signs of winter in California. We’ve had a few weeks of back to back rain storms, a welcome break from the drought but temperatures remain mild. Most of the deciduous trees are bare of their leaves but others remain evergreen.
Here’s a peek into the winter garden. It asks for little and gives a lot. Nature is like that.
Here is a shot of the little tomato that could, a self-sown seedling growing from a crack in the steps. Yep…tomato plants in December.
During this hectic time of year, I hope you can find a few moments to enjoy what nature has to offer.
