BY SAMANTHA JOHNSON
Into that barren, white winter world bursts a flash of color—mostly greens but some reds, some yellows, sometimes even purple. It’s a time for jubilation on the brilliant December day when we find the first seed catalog in the mailbox. It’s a seed of hope, a bit of reassurance that spring is coming, a spark of a reason to dream.
