Got nothing to do? Okay, got nothing fun to do? Why not try Lowe’s Garden Planner? You’ll need Macromedia Flash and the dimensions of your house and yard. I know, who’s going to schlep out in the snow and measure? So make it up. It’s more fun than doing your taxes, and it’s cheaper than buying some garden design software.
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.
