Winter Weather...

Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?’s a frozen puddle, in our driveway. 

We’ve been having sub-freezing weather,
here in Texas. 

This is the third one, this winter. 

I know. You up North are saying waaa...waaa. 
But, we just don’t expect this much cold. 

Of course, in between these cold spells, we’re getting up to 70s. 

To say the plants...and, animals...are confused,
is an understatement. 

All the gardeners here are hoping for the best. 
Not sure how much will have to be replaced, come Spring. 

But, Nature’s artwork is interesting. 

I think I’ve shown you Frost Weed before. 
In deep cold, the stems burst and this cotton candy looking stuff 
comes out. When the temperature goes up,
or the sun hits it, it dissolves. 

This was a couple weeks ago. These stayed for a couple days. 
We stayed below freezing. 

So, we just hope for the best. 
And...we’ll enjoy sunshine and 70 degrees again this weekend. 

It’s never boring, at least. 

Hope it’s good weather where you are. 

Happy Gardening

Let It Snow!!....

It's been ten days ago, now.
But, something that very rarely happens in this area, happened.


Enough to stick.

That was a Thursday night.
On Monday of that week, we hit 84 degrees.

Welcome to Texas weather.

It kept on snowing...

And, snowing...

Wet, heavy snow...

The next morning dawned bright and sunny.

The snow was already beginning to melt.

But, it was beautiful, while it lasted.

I worried about some things.
But, they came through ok.

They's no telling when we'll ever see this again.

It was SO fun!

When you live with Texas weather...
you just never know what you'll get.

Hope the weather's just the way you want it,
wherever you are.

Happy Gardening...
