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.

Ooh, that would be awesome, I wish I could go. I wonder if there’s anything like that in Denver… Have a great time! 🙂

Our “mini-walk” will include more gardens than a lot of other garden tours! (at least 20, I am pretty sure). Seriously, the maxi-walk can be overload.

Maybe we can get a carpool arrangement from the area. That’s said, I’m lousy at committing more than a week or two out.

Think I’ll try to make it this year! I already vowed to go to Garden Walk after missing it in ’09. This might be a good mini-walk.
