Cold Climate Gardening has a tiny bit-part in House Beautiful’s June issue. If you happen to subscribe or see a copy for sale, turn to page 40 and check out the top right part of the page. If you don’t manage to get hold of a copy, no worries. It is a shortened version of my post about ‘Lauren’s Grape’ poppy and ‘Dark Towers’ penstemon. If you are a House Beautiful reader and are visiting for the first time because of the photo feature, thank you so much for going to the trouble of typing in the website address. I hope you find a lot of useful information. Don’t be afraid to comment on this or any other post, and click on almost any photo to get a larger version.
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.
