We had our first snow yesterday. It stuck to the grass but not the road. It lasted until the sun came out. Last night we had more snow and this is sticking. I am sad to see fall end, but I wouldn’t trade our winter for a Texas summer no-way, no-how!! I have to confess, though, ever since I discovered Texas garden blogs, it’s been a bit easier to get through the winter. A couple of days ago, Bill Hopkins of Prairie Point posted a photo of his ‘Valentine’ rose, and it sure is a looker. Helps you remember that life still goes on somewhere else when everything’s gone dormant in your neck of the woods.
In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
