doodle by andre: here today, gone tomorrow
NORTHERN GARDENERS KNOW ABOUT FINALITY. Its name is hard frost, and it will be here any day now…having sent an advance guard of light frosts three or four nights already to visit and survey the premises. Light frost is a tease; hard frost doesn’t kid around. But you have to wait until it hits your dahlias and cannas and such before you dig them (as I have explained in detail elsewhere), which doodler genius Andre Jordan apparently knows. He’d better know: This British transplant is now living in South Dakota, after a stop in Nebraska (which will soon seem like Florida, once your new version of winter sets in, requiring a different kind of shovel altogether, Andre). Brrrrr.
