Back when I used to get my January issues of Home Companion, Country Home, and the former Victoria Magazine, I noticed how the theme was often gardening.
But even here in zone seven it will be time for pea and lettuce planting in a few short weeks! You must congratulate me for knowing that much. As much as I love gardens, I don't lift a solitary finger in that direction.
Maybe in my dotage I will suddenly take to the soil. I never say never (smile), but it's not likely to happen. I am enamored of too many interior and bookish pursuits to tear myself away to the outdoors for labor. And labor it is to have lush growth in the high desert.
So back to magazines and January .... My look back to my cottage colors of the past year give both a nod to the publishing custom, and help me recall balmier times while in the depths of the deepest part of winter. Colder here in New Mexico now than our usual for this time of the year.
While my cottage colors don't spring from a living garden, they're certainly inspired by one. And they're nearly as cheery!
Thanks so much for your visit!
Ciao! for now!
