Kerry Mendez just emailed me about the Great Gardens and Landscaping Symposium: “Six dynamic garden lectures by nationally recognized speakers, great handouts, food, door prizes, and garden gifts. The event takes place at The Equinox Resort in Manchester, VT. Overnight packages and day only rates available. Speakers include garden designer Julie Moir Messervy; Charlie Nardozzi of the National Gardening Association; Joe Kunkel, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society and past President of the Perennial Plant Association; Heather Poire from Proven Winners; and perennial specialist Kerry Ann Mendez of Perennially Yours.” For more about the speakers, topics, agenda and registration fee, visit the symposium’s web site or call Kerry at (518) 885-3471.
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.
