I’m living in an alternate reality called the Garden Writers Association Annual Symposium in Raleigh, NC. I get up and get on a bus and am transported to an alien world where the plants are, well, different. I’ve only got my netbook and my photo editing tools are lame, so more when I get home.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
