Here we go again…….
A front passed through TheGreatWall around noon,today.The temperatures have started dropping.And tomorrow and the next night we are due for freezes!
Time to get out the freeze blankets and strip the sheets off the beds!
Isn’t this supposed to be a La Nina’ winter? Guess Mother Nature didn’t get the memo…..
Cuttings have been taken.
And I think they make for very pretty,Christmas-y floral arrangements.
Tomorrow,we’ll be putting the hoop house back up over the veggie garden.
It may be frightful outside but inside TheGreatWall headquarters it is beginning to look like Christmas!
The tree is up!
l-r:a blown glass palm tree,me!,and of course,a flip-flop!
And you had to know we’d have a pink flamingo on the tree……..
On a sad note:This past week we lost YardBoy’s 88 year old mother.The woman who taught him everything he knows about growing roses(and that’s a lot!).And who made the best macaroni salad you have EVER tasted!Seriously!I’m not kidding. It is the BEST!
But after years of poor health,her body finally gave out.We are thankful she is with the Lord,and is tending to His rose garden.
Mama Pat,you will be missed dearly
