Carol of May Dreams Gardens is proposing a Garden Bloggers’ Book Club for this winter. Quite a few people have signed on, and I’m adding my name to the list. Currently Carol is still soliciting suggestions for which books to read. Frankly, there have been so many good suggestions that I don’t know how she’ll pare the list down. We’ll all read the specified book for the month, publish our comments/review on our own blog and leave a comment at the blog of the coordinator for the month.
Easy and fun. Looking forward to it!
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
