I’m taking a short break, but I’ll be back on Jan. 19 with a new edition of

As usual, it will contain great garden tips, events and everything you need to know about gardening in Western New York.

We gardeners are already looking forward to next spring–and the days are getting longer!

And there’s more to be optimistic about. We’re still in the midst of a pandemic, but two vaccines for COVID-19 have been approved. That’s hopeful news! Let’s keep wearing our masks and do what we can to keep ourselves and others safe.

Gardeners are optimistic, wonderful people. They encourage beginners, share advice gently and listen attentively.

In 2021, let’s use those attributes in other parts of our lives as well. Let’s build up the people around us instead of tearing them down. Let’s be humble and try to understand others. Let’s listen as well as speak. Let’s be kind.

Have a happy and safe New Year.
