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.
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.
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.
My guess is that we found out that it can be very cold in November. Not just cold temperatures, but record cold temperatures. The cold temperatures that we had killed off the rest of your annual flowers and any of your remaining vegetable plants.
It looks like we will be getting some cold weather come the end of the week. Hopefully, our minds and bodies will all be ready for this.
October is slowly rolling to a close. The temperatures have been abnormally warm so we all have been lulled into a sense of late summer. But we all know (or deny) that November can be a bear when it comes to weather.
