Twas the 6th day of December and not a twig, branch, leaf, blade of grass, etc., etc. (you get the picture) was left untouched by frost. Wait ~ December 6th?? Isn't it still officially fall? No one would believe that in my neck of the woods.
The tree line across the street from my house screams "winter:"
Notice the snow covered ground too?? Sure looks like Winter to me.
It settled in on October 26th (the date of our first snowstorm) and refuses to give Fall it's rightful time back!
Blog readers prepare yourselves for a looonnngg stretch of the "winter blues" compliments of yours truly.
When winter bullies in after only one month of Fall it doesn't take a calculator to figure that's FIVE months of gnarly white cold versus the three dedicated on the calendar.
Totally disproportionate, don't you think?
This gardener would prefer if the months were skewed the opposite way!
Maybe Spring will figure out a way to chip off some time on that end?
You know that's what this girl's hoping for....
