Winter thoughts...

On December 1st, many of us looked out our windows in Western PA to see the first snowfall of the season. What an amazing sight of the beauty and resilience of nature. In 2020, we have experienced nature's fury through storms, floods and forest fires. Then COVID19 arrived. One positive was more time spent in our gardens. We can now experience nature in her natural form, as we move through the dormant season and look forward to her reawakening in the spring. 

As we wait, we reflect on how our gardens performed and decide what changes...if any...should be made in the coming season. In the meantime, we anticipate the arrival of numerous gardening catalogs. They help to nourish our gardening spirit as we await spring and all the joy of being in our gardens once again. 

We wish you a wonderful Holiday Season, hoping that you and your loved ones stay well. Looking forward to 2021 and a new gardening season.
