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!
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.
