by Lilly Jayne of Pruning the Dead
The Garden Squad series by Julia Henry
In the winter I'm spoiled to have wonderful greenhouse, but even then, February is cold. So I've taken to forcing bulbs, creating a pop of nature's colors against the bleak midwinter sky. Hyacinths are a particular favorite.
My friend Delia and I have taken to scouring antique shops for Victorian jars that were dedicated to the purpose. That adds another element to this winter hobby.
Yes, forcing bulbs can get me through the winter until I can get outdoors. Some folks suggest that I go south for the winter, but leave Goosebush? Never. There's too much going on in my little town, not all of it good.
Pruning the Dead is the first in the new Garden Squad mystery series by Julia Henry! To celebrate the release, I'm going to give two commenters randomly chosen a copy of Pruning. Leave your email in the comment, and let me know what your favorite flower is this time of year. I'll choose the winner on February 23!
