Standing in one spot and rotating 180 degrees. Little snow in the backyard and 4 inches in the frontyard. Temperatures above freezing now so hopefully it is all going away.
Our hydrangea keeps on blooming though the flowers are looking suspiciously freeze dried.
Still, a bit of colour for this first day of Winter .
We’re having our first real cold snap. I needed to empty our glass birdbath and found it a little more frozen than it should have been. We lost last years birdbath to the cold so I’m slowly learning.
Not quite that expression, more like – When life gives you rain storms, collect rain water.
It is hard to believe that just three months ago we were just coming through one of our hottest and driest Summers. Though our well held up we did ration our water and the garden suffered for it. One thing that helped is this water collection system at the back of my shop. Each barrel is 50 gallons so the 300 gallons can be stretched quite a way. I have a 12 volt solar powered pump so I can sprinkle the surrounding garden. Throughout the property we have collection for another 1500 gallons. Still not enough but it’s a start.
