Winter Solstice Saturday

For him in vain the envious seasons roll
Who bears eternal summer in his soul

Oliver Wendell Holmes

February is a short month, Mama always said, as if it contained fewer weeks rather than just 2 or 3 days fewer than the others. Meanwhile she was planting bits of lettuces in a tub in the chimney corner on the south, or behind a field terrace in the sun.

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
