the last few days of this year........so I'm back.
(our woods, a few frozen years ago)
This is the last day of fall........tomorrow, winter begins.
Although I am not looking forward to snow or extreme ice,
I still find beauty in the frozen woods
For those who love to work outside and in their gardens,
this time of year is usually a slow down time.
For me, it is the heavy work time; it is the perfect time to "safely" work outside
and to clear garden spaces for the next growing season.
I can easily work in layered clothing and gloves
easier in 30 degrees than to work in sweltering 107 degrees
in late spring and summer.
Also, the rattlesnakes will be very slow to strike in frigid temps,
if I come upon one while clearing brush and cactus.
This is also a time I love to look over garden books
and seed catalogs and dream about my future gardens
that I would love to be able to build and grow.
So tell me......
do you do outside work when cold winter days come?,
or do you find yourself by a cozy fire and are perfectly content that way?
I would love to hear!
