its been lightly snowing here for the past three days. this time of year, the days are short and cold and all is quiet in the garden. in aligning ourselves with the seasonal rhythms of the earth, we have been focusing more on inside work of late – inside our house and inside ourselves. Resting, reading, cleaning, organizing, planning for the spring, and enjoying the warmth of our woodstove are daily activities. After experiencing the second wettest spring on record in 2011, thus far we’ve had a remarkably dry and mild winter.
