Straight to the depths of winter… temps ranging from 12-32 degrees the last week, with clear skies. It may warm after tonight.
Kat hasn’t quite finished decorating… only 187 trees in the house at the moment. Arrow doesn’t seem to mind the cold; even Malfina [manx] is spending nites in the shed rather than the house, unlike the coldest part of last year. Myself… I have to go in every few hours to warm fingers and feet, as my computer and workshop are in the shed.
Despite the freeze, a california poppy lasted in bloom until yesterday… a potted snapdragon still blossoms outside the shed, also. On our walks, the blackberry brambles are being harvested by the wintering birds.
