SoCal Gardening, “The Art of Gardening in Southern California,” is my latest garden blog discovery, thanks to Ilona. And I’m checking out BlogShares today per her suggestion.

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 have to tell you, Kathy, making my way through the BlogShares links was work… so many garden blogs were either slapped up just to take the name ( probably for commrecial purposes) or not updated in forever. It was kind of disappointing. But the gems that are discovered are worth it. I think it is a likely source as something to check on occasion, and the game part of it seems fun.
