we’ve actually had it pretty easy this winter.
it didn’t start to get really cold until after christmas. the first week of september was the warmest week of the summer. thanksgiving was sweatshirt weather. it’s been below zero a few times the past couple weeks, but not TOO bad below zero. (-20º or so – nothing for the true, hardy minnesotan.) measurable snow’s been on the ground for maybe a month and a half. and we’re almost to february.
so why do i want to be done with winter already? i imagine springtime smells, summer mornings, sunsets at 9 p.m. … they haven’t been gone that long, have they?
in the meantime, i’ll browse my seed catalogs and try to figure out how to better curate my garden. think of dew on the grass and try to keep a little bit warm.
