Daytime temps have been in the 60's. Clear, blue blue skies, ridges aflame in color.
Nights have hovered around freezing. It must have dipped below for a while because in one fell swoop, everything is dead: hydrangeas, the last of the tomatoes,the New Zealand impatiens, petunias in the hanging baskets, the zinnias, the straggly dahlias. Even the walnut trees undressed themselves in a day, shimmying out of their remaining leaves, huge walnut baubles dropping all over the driveway and yard.
Maybe this year we will see a good winter, more snow. I haven't yet consulted with the woolly worms, or the almanac. Anyone know what's in store?
