Don Bolin emailed today to inform me of An Iowa Garden, his not-quite-two-week-old gardening blog. He claims he started it “mainly to use my new digital camera,” and he takes some pretty good pictures. His very first post is an awesome photo of a snowdrop, one of the most dramatic I’ve ever seen. (Yeah, he’s got snowdrops blooming. Sigh.) But he’s obviously quite passionate about gardening, and can be pretty funny, too. Guaranteed to relieve boredom!
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.
