Thursday WalkAbout: January

We’ve seen it all this January in Missouri. Snow, rain, sleet – we expect that! 70 degree temps and cilantro growing in the garden? Hmmm. Now that, my friends, is a wonderful gift.
This walkabout is from earlier this month -- on one of our “gifts” type of days. The creek was thawing and the waterfall was running full speed.

Today, however, January is going out true to its winter spirit.. blustery cold! (but the cilantro still survives.. strange!)
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.

Love the pics, I am surprised the cilantro survives. Must be the variety you have. I live in Michigan and the snow kills it off every year:(

It has been crazy weather every where. I hope your cilantro continues to survive!

How nice to have a creek nearby. Such a soothing sound.

hmmmm interesting about the cilantro... I can't grow it in the summer time let alone the winter, maybe it's the rain ;)

Fresh Cilantro! Dang I could have borrowed some from you Sunday when I canned my beans. I had to use dried!

Love your pictures!

beautiful pics. Our cilantro survived until the first freezing rain. I was so bummed to see it go. :)
