Just discovered Frog Hollow by following the link on a comment Gabrielle Adams made at Horticultural. Gabrielle’s blog covers a wide range of topics, so for my maiden voyage I chose the Gardening category. Well, you know, any gardener that can actually write about what’s in bloom in the garden in January provokes a twinge (just a tiny, teensy twinge) of envy in this cold climate gardener, who currently looks out her window at an ocean of snow. But that quickly evaporated as I learned that, due to health problems, Gabrielle can’t go outside to garden from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.! Makes my own wrist complaint seem trivial. Besides her passion for gardening, she’s also a connoisseur of children’s lit., and a raiser of bees. If you need (yet another) remedy for cabin fever, look no further. There’s plenty here to stimulate and engage you.
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.
