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.

I’m still laughing almost too hard to comment…yeah, where AM I gonna plant them all? Details, details! Most of my perennials are still young, so there are lots of gaps to fill still…my garden club’s plant sale can always use more seedlings…containers containers containers…and lawn? Gone!
