That makes for four very long months. Sure, the seed and nursery catalogs have started arriving and those are good to lose oneself in for awhile, but that only sustains a gardener for so long.
I have found the best cure for gardening fever, not to mention cabin fever, is a bit of time away. It’s really only delaying the inevitable gardening obsession, but I suspect it’s aids in sanity maintenance.
So I’m off for a little jaunt to the south for a work-related trip that will be so fun it will look more like a vacation. In fact, by the time you read this it will be half over. I doubt I’ll be able to post while I’m gone (spotty Internet is usually step No. 1 in a good vacation) but have no fear, I’ll be back soon and ready to talk gardening. Aren’t we all?
So … I actually wrote this post on the plane on the way down and have been trying unsuccessfully for four days to get a picture from the journey in it. Sadly, it’s not to meant to be (spotty Internet, what a great problem to have on vacation) so you’ll have to do without. Be back soon!
