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.

I never thought I’d EVER look forward to mud, but this year may just be the exception. 🙂 Can’t wait to see some of those spring blooms here.

Very carefully chosen and sited snowdrops–that is the key.
