Garden in Delight blog retreats for the month of January to savor the holidays and get organized for the New Year – blessings to you if you do the same!
In the meantime, while puttering and cleaning up what you can in winter’s warmer moments, set aside an old garden pot or find a new one on sale. When our blog resumes in February, the Lenten season will be here. A special Planting Pots devotion series is planned for the weeks leading up to Easter, a unique way to focus on the life of Christ through assembling a pot of garden herbs and greens.
Looking forward to February and until then, check in on my Instagram page for snippets of #Godswordforgardeners.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
Happy New Year!
