The Winter Garden
Since it is now officially winter it seems reasonable to show a few pictures of our winter garden.
Winter is a great time to be in the garden at OJA. Gone is the glare of summer. The sun is hanging low in the southern sky and casts a gentler light on our plants. This blurs the line between edibles and ornamentals. Everything is more beautiful. A hay bale turns into a park bench. Thinking seems more like day dreaming and working in this softer sunshine seems more like play. Toil without sweat is a welcome change for students who tend to wilt a bit in the heat of August and September. If you’ve ever slogged through a tropical summer you know what golden days these are. It’s no “winter wonderland” but we’ll make do.
