Planted 6 Burgundy Star Easy Wave petunias & 6 Purple Flash ornamental peppers in the birdbath bed. These were trial plants sent by the Ball Horticultural Company. Expecting rain tomorrow. No more frost! Who knows? Maybe I’ll get brave and actually put the birdbath out.

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.
