Gardening doesn't stop just because there is snow on the ground. When the need to work in soil and nurture plants strikes, even during winter, look to indoor gardening tasks such as repotting and transplanting.
Awakening early on the first frosty morning of autumn is a photographic opportunity not to be missed. October 13, 2012 brought not just the first frost to my Connecticut gardens, but the first freeze. Temperatures dropping to 28 degrees F. ceases the growing season for tender annuals. The secret is enabling the camera lens to catch frosted leaves before they begin to thaw.
