VT 11.2.13


A garden in winter is the absolute test of the true gardener.  Fair-weather gardeners are to gardens what interior decorators are to building--they only know half the story.  True gardening is as much about the bones of the garden as its planning; true architecture is as much about the form and structure of a building as its rooms.  If your garden looks good in winter, you belong to a select band capable of bending nature to its will.  If you master the worst that winter can throw at you--ice, snow, wind without remorse--you will have a sense of conquest.
