Early Winter

November 20th, 2018 § 2 comments

Secret Garden, Mid-November 

Winter arrived early this year —more than a month early, with 8″ of snow on November 15th, to be exact— leaving me a bit underprepared. Mother Nature decides when the seasons change, and she couldn’t care less about our plans. Those bulbs you bought on sale in late October? Guess you’ll be potting those up now, silly fool. Put off that brush clearing? Welcome to the jungle next spring, sweetie. Half-stacked firewood? Baby, it’s cold outside and it will be inside as well if you don’t smarten up. Old Man Winter caught you lounging on the terrace with that mug of hot chocolate, and he had a good long laugh. You call yourself a New Englander? Oh, now you shall pay!

Dark. Cold. Snowbound. More December 20th than November 20th in Vermont

    Hi Michaela, isn’t this just a stunner of a year? Things are much the same up here, and you definitely got me laughing. Not much time to respond, but I’m really glad you’re back to posting: ) xo Deb
