This morning it was zero. Yikes! Now the sky is a beautiful blue and the sun is blazing. It has gone up to a toasty four degrees. On Friday we had 12 inches of fluffy snow. It looks like a winter wonderland. I sure am happy about the nice blanket Mother Nature put on my plants before this cold spell. Hopefully all the new things I planted this Summer and Fall are taking nice naps. Looks like I will be concentrating on house plants for a while. They brighten up the atmosphere. Besides looking at plant catalogs and my garden journal, what are you fellow gardeners doing during this down time? I would like to hear from you. P.S Happy Holidays to you & yours!
