Regular readers of this blog were probably frustrated the last few days, as well as last Thursday (I know I was). In a word: server troubles. Actually I have found my web hosting service to be pretty reliable, but they were the victims of a denial of service attack, and so, indirectly, I was a victim, too. It seems like everything has been fixed–they moved me to a new server, as a matter of fact, which is what caused the second delay. I had to change the address that my domain name pointed to. And now, back to our regularly scheduled program . . .
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
