From December to March,
there are for many of us three gardens -
the garden outdoors,
the garden of pots and bowls in the house,
and the garden of the mind's eye.
Katherine S. White
Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle
... a seed waiting to sprout,
a bulb opening to the light,
a bud straining to unfurl.
And the anticipation nurtures our dream.
On for the rook, One for the crow,
One to die, One to grow.
