I kid you not. WiseAcre Gardens: An Unusual Site Planted by a Blooming Looneytic is the name of the website. Half gardening website, half homage to Looney Tunes cartoons, the design of this site is a bit too–er, busy for my taste. Nevertheless, located north of the Adirondacks, the owner of this site has some solid horticultural information to share. And, if you happen to live in the North Country of New York State yourself, and need some rock work done, you may have found your man. The photos of gardens where he has installed stone walls, patios, and paths look great.

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.
