Garden Reports and Rejoicing – January 21
When I got up this morning it was a bit misty outside, but there was no significant precipitation as I drove into the station. Two hours later, when GardenLine ended, the snow was falling and the roads were getting slick. I was pleased to pull into my garage and know that I didn’t have to go out for the rest of the day.
I love a good snowfall. It’s the only time the region where I live gets totally quiet. No traffic sounds, near or far.
My immediate landscape is visually transformed as well. I love the way that the most functional of structures is suddenly transformed. What was once a fence or plant support is changed into graphic sculpture. The landscape becomes both stark and beautiful.
There are many times in life when our perspective is abruptly altered and we are able to see with new eyes. Challenges call us to see differently.
