There were many patches of Cyclamen coum in Mr. Lyman’s garden. This had the most intensely colored flowers. Having finally seen this cyclamen for myself, I regret not having purchased some from Seneca Hill Perennials when it was still in business.
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.
