Winter is such a great season to make plans for the future. Not only does one tend to have a little more time on his or her hands, but he or she may seem less likely to be rushed to do anything. As I plan for the upcoming seasons, my mind seems to race with the many opportunities that are available to us all to enrich and beautify the community. We see progress being made with each passing year. To me, this progress seems slow, but as long as I see growth and expansion, I know the end result will be incredible. As a gardener, one learns to be patient for things to show their true beauty.
