When Elisabeth Donovan of the Miami Herald took note of our blog several weeks ago, she commented that she didn’t know of any Florida gardening blogs. Well, one has come to my attention. The Garden’s Gift is actually a collection of several blogs linked together into a website, and yes, she’s got an RSS feed. (Atom, actually.) Maybe you Texan gardeners can compare notes, ’cause here I am waiting for the snow to melt, and she’s talking about being out in her bathrobe at six in the morning. It’s hard to wrap my mind around the concept, especially when I’ve been debating whether it’s yet warm enough to stop wearing sweatpants under my bathrobe in the house. Welcome to the club, Nancy!
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.
