These days my mind drifts back and forth between color and black & white images. January is the new beginning to the new year, new resolutions, new commitments, recommitting to a new resolve and a change in life perhaps.
The lens that I look through is a little different this January. I know that new beginnings are just around the corner but to be honest I have mentally hibernated a little bit. So January for me feels like I am rounding turn three and entering turn four in a race. Typically in this race November should be turn three, December turn four, with the finish line January 1st. With all thats going on am I the only one who feels this way? I hope so. It seems like the finish line is similar to the end of a rainbow. The closer I get, the further it seems.
Rounding the fourth turn isn’t necessarily about the finish line or completing the race. For me it is about an accomplishment and the opportunity for new beginnings. While it may seem like we are rounding turn three in January, we are not.
January is about flowers. Walking through the nursery today with my “turn three” mentality and my black & white vision I was snapped back to reality. This isn’t turn three and we have crossed the finish line. There is nothing but new beginnings ahead. Walk your garden, look for the flowers, and be reminded of all the new beginnings to come.
New Beginnings in the Cafe
The cafe will open tomorrow, January 13th, for to-go orders only and “picnic dining” at our nursery tables. Our hours are Wednesday-Friday from 11:00am-3:00pm and Saturday & Sunday from 9:00am-3:00pm. You can walk in and order in person from a friendly familiar face or you can schedule an order online for pickup. If you wish you can “picnic” at High-Hand at one of our self serve tables outside on the patio or in the nursery. Of course we can turn on the heater just let us know. Hats, coats, gloves, scarves, thermal underwear, and insulated boots are highly recommended.
They say life starts with bread but at High-Hand life starts with our baker. Come enjoy your cafe favorites and walk the nursery and enjoy new beginnings.
Look forward to seeing you at High-Hand.
