It always seems that the last week of December is really cold. This year is not going to be the exception to the rule.
At about this time every year, we have people who come into the garden center, looking for inspiration. They usually have someone on their gift list that happens to be a gardener.
The roughly 6 inches of snow came as somewhat of a surprise. On the other hand, it is December and December usually means snow at some point in the month. Raise your hand if you didn’t get all the leaves raked up before the snow. My hand is in the air.
It’s hard to believe that we are now into the month of December. It seems like it was only yesterday that we were complaining about the heat and the humidity.
Well, this will definitely be the last column for 2014! I think I have run out of days to write anything more.
You may have noticed that there are some moths flying around your yard. You may think that it is a bit odd that moths would be flying around this late in the year.
The month of December is rapidly winding down and all of us who garden will be settling in for “our long winter’s nap.”
It is almost Thanksgiving and each day people tell me that they can’t believe that November is almost over. Yet the leaves haven’t fallen off the oak trees and in many yards the leaves are still sitting on the lawn.
This week, I thought that I would remind you of some of the chores that you need to finish before the snow flies into our yards for the winter.
It would appear that the creatures have begun to find our gardens.
