Last night I discovered Notes From Zone 4, a real live bona fide cold climate gardening blog, authored by Frank and Lisa Richards of New Hampshire. They started it in November 2000, apparently after rebuilding from a house fire. The design is simple, but pleasing; the writing is straightforward and informative, and there seem to be photos on every page, at least, as many pages as I looked at. With archives going back that far, there’s an awful lot of pages to browse. Sigh. I suppose it’s just as well I didn’t know about this blog sooner; it might have made starting my own blog more intimidating.
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
