When Winter Comes...Spring Follows
Bill Cullina's most excellent account of how plants adapt and survive to the frigid temperatures of winter appeared in two parts. I linked to the first installment when it appeared a couple months ago. Part two -which looks toward spring, as I too am already doing- is now available at the fine site maintained by the New England Wildflower Society. Good reading for a January day, especially here in New England where we're having an old-fashioned winter. Brrr!
