Here we go again. It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas – about an inch of snow, not much by U.P. standards, but more than we like in April. It won’t hurt the bulbs that are on their way up (about 2-3 inches). Got my seedlings that I planted in vermiculite pricked out into better soil – have to go on an emergency trip to California, and the vermiculite dries out too fast. Someone will water for me. Geraniums doing fine on the glassed in porch even though one night it was in the single digits. They do pretty well if they don’t get wet as with rain or dew. At least we got the lawn raked before it snowed.
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.
