Winter Waiting

The British Philosopher, Bertrand Russell once said, “The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” Sorry to say it’s a Monday morning reality check. This freeze-thaw cycle can be a bit harsh on the spirit, especially those of us that brave out the weather roller coaster in New England. During the winter months, tantalizing spring temperatures often appear and disappear but our wits remain sharp enough to realize that, like it or not, we’re still knee-deep in this season of waiting.
The magical part about winter - we can afford to catch up on that cumbersome list we didn’t have time to undertake during the busy growing season. Our weary gardening bodies crave this downtime to learn, discover, read, and plan. Don’t trade in that sense of winter tranquility with the first warm temperature that flashes by you. Steady on the spring fever. Learn, discover, read, and plan. Winter waiting grows those gardening wits sharper.
