There will be no meeting of the Garden Club in January. Now is the time to start planning your spring garden. Gather the seed catalogs, try new and different varieties of flowers and vegetables, visit your local garden center and this long cold month will be over before you know it. Let your imagination run wild with new colors of flowers and varieties of vegetables you have never tried. Don’t forget to feed the birds. Keep a journal of the many different birds that visit. They can provide you with hours of fun!
