New Gardening Blog

– Posted in: Recommended Links

Has anyone else been reading Toward a green thumb? If so, why didn’t you tell me? I want to know about every gardening blog out there. I collect them. And one day, real soon now, I am going update my Garden Blog page. The archives for this blog go back to September, so while it’s obviously new to me, it’s not brand-new. Looking forward to some new reading material as the windchills drop below zero, and the snow swirls around the flower beds. Discovered via Blogarama.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
