A gardener's New Year
Wednesday, January 02, 2013 4:25 PM

By Kylee Baumle

I love new beginnings. Whether it’s a fresh sheet of paper just waiting for me to make a list on it, a new grandchild just starting to make her way in this world, or another season in the garden, it’s like a breath of fresh air. Right now, it’s that brisk, refreshing winter air that’s filling me up with thoughts of the new year and what it will bring.

There’s always the anticipation and wonder of the unknown – those unexpected delights that you didn’t count on. (And some not so delightful, but we won’t think about those just now.) Take 2012, for instance. At the beginning of the year, I didn’t know that before 2013 arrived, there would be a little girl that would capture her grandma and grandpa’s hearts like only grandchildren can do.

Nor would I know that by year’s end, I would be putting the finishing touches on a book that will list me as one of its two authors.
