The second annual Thaw ‘n Awe horticultural symposium will take place March 13th in Twin Falls. Speakers include the internationally known Panayoti Kelaidis, who will be speaking about “sun daisies, hardy gazanias and manzanitas that survive 50 degrees below zero,” among other topics. Other speakers will discuss plants native to Idaho, creativity in garden design, and iris breeding. Get your thirty bucks to them by March 1st. Sounds like you won’t regret it.

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.
