I’m not sure whether these people are “my people” or not. But I think they probably are. I have to confess that for all the being-in-the-house-in-the-cold we’ve done, we do very little being-in-the-yard-in-the-cold. I really can’t abide the idea of an outdoor propane heater, with all those BTU’s spending just a few scant seconds warming your body before going on to warm the planet– but the idea of “sitting out in the snow, drinking a Scotch and watching the sunset” is appealing, as is the concept of a cold-frame winter (or, at least, early spring) garden.
This we do have in common with the folks interviewed for the article: ““The difference between summer entertaining and winter entertaining is less people.”
