Avon Garden Club

Avon, Ohio


There is beauty in winter. Look outside. W alk outside. It is there. Although some see dull gray, others see the beauty that is winter. As the dormancy of winter is upon us, the roughly nine and a half hours of day light are treasured by gardeners and non-gardeners alike. The birds outside enjoy the seed treats left for them and gain the much needed nourishment they require. They fly to and fro from leafless tree branches to the feeder. They are a pleasure to watch and we look forward to their daily visits.

Above ground, it appears nothing is happening; however, we know that winter is the time that the earth is working, nurturing, and preparing for spring. During these winter days, as we walk by our gardens, we eagerly await the first signs of spring, the freshness of the air, and the beauty of the earth as buds burst forth and flowers bloom. W e long for and anticipate the beauty of the first sighting of a crocus, a snowdrop, or a glory-of-the-snow which is but a small taste of the beauty that the earth has created for us. May we be good stewards of the earth, treasuring and preserving it. As we daydream and look forward to spring, we know before long, in just a few short weeks this dormant season will be behind us and we will be enjoying the beauty of spring.

Enjoying the beauty of Winter, and looking forward to Spring,
