Alas Winter shows its face

By: AkashaD , 8:56 PM GMT on December 06, 2011

Sun shining and nature and nature is carrying on business as usual. Weather underground says its 41 degrees but my car and backyard thermometer haven't gone above 33 degrees today. I guess at last Winter has arrived.

Most of the tropical s and annuals have begun to fade. late, but the maples though late are putting on brilliant color. We had a slow drenching rain for two days straight. The stress I felt from the woods has abated and the trees are beginning to sleep.

I just got a freeze warning. It could be below freezing by night fall. Winter is truly here.

I agree! Winter is here...I'm going to cover my young peach trees that are in planters in front of the house; I've nursed them all through the drought, don't want to lose them now!!
