GARDENER’S CHECKLIST: Week of December 22, 2022

Our master gardener takes a break from greening his thumbs to reflect on the spirit and purpose of the holidays.

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published in 2021, and is re-printed here with updates from the author.

As passionate as I am about gardening, this is the one time of year when I have little to say. Oh, I find great pleasure in the scent of holiday greenery and the sight of colorful poinsettias, amaryllis, and other flowering plants. As always, they lighten my spirits and invoke thoughts of how beautiful life can be. 

Yet, as with many families, we’ll experience some emptiness this holiday. It is all the more reason to pause, to cherish our memories, to be grateful for the moments we’ve shared with loved ones, and to open our hearts to those who are dear to us.   

I count you among the latter. Enjoy all that life has to offer this festive season and have a very Merry Christmas!
