Our enclosed porch is pretty drafty and faces west, which is where the winds usually come from. I can’t imagine it being more than 5 degrees warmer than outside, which these days is getting below zero at night. Then again, I’ve never stuck a thermometer out there and checked. At any rate, there is a broken window right now which makes all speculations moot. I am getting cabin fever pretty bad. Does anyone know of good websites for sheer gorgeousness of floral photography, sort of like the Internet equivalent of a coffee table book? I do have certain books that I like to look at in the winter just because the photographs satisfy the deep hunger for color that I get this time of year. Maybe I’ll compile a list and share it.
In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
