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!
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.
