When Change Comforts
Garden Reports and Rejoicing – November 2
Two nights ago we had the first hard frost of the season. Today the annuals are all blackened, but on the morning after the frost they were still in color and dusted with white ice crystals. It was lovely.
Some may be sad to see most of the garden go, and I admit that I’ll miss the colorful beds, cut flowers and fresh vegetables. But as I’ve said before, the change is also a welcome release. The first frost signals a time to focus inward and turn to other pursuits. If the only thing that’s constant is change, it’s probably beneficial to embrace the transformations and find ways to work with such seasons.
