  1. We wouldn’t appreciate it near as much if that was all we had! No, we need winter for the plants to rest – and spring for the burst of life from the dormancy of the seeds – and then with the summer’s warmth, the glorious sunflowers are really appreciated!

    1. You are so right Jan. Along about and March I have to remind myself of that. If there was more light maybe I wouldn’t be craving the plants quite so much. I do love the austere beauty of winter. And actually I moved to East for the seasons.

      1. Yes, Catherine, we moved from CA to Montana partly because of our desire to have those four seasons. I just wish they were equal in length!

  2. As much as I love summer. I welcome the end of the season. Not because I love autumn or winter…but because after taking intense care of a demanding garden from early spring until the leaves are raked and all the tools are put away, I am frankly pretty damned tired out and glad it’s over for a bit of a break.
    Having lived in a subtropical climate for 15 years, many years ago, I know first-hand the constant state of a summery climate…while it is nice to be able to use nearly all the months for outdoor pleasures, even that gets somewhat tiresome eventually.
    I would hope more people could become comfortable with where they are and with what they have and could stop for just a moment and be grateful they have anything at all.
