Re: where is everyone?


Haven't been able to do any fall gardening to speak of.  Combination of
uncooperative weather, two big, time-consuming indexing jobs, a
long weekend visit from the Colorado son and wife, and just a lot of
other stuff.  I'm pretty frustrated - haven't even been able to put my
bulbs in.  The week before Thanksgiving, the temperature dropped
into the teens and we had a couple of days that didn't even get above
freezing, but it has moderated since, and we have even had a few
nights when it didn't freeze. Today it's 43 and very cloudy - will rain
and will probably snow tonight.
Before all this started, I did get my peonies cut down - I did it early
because the deer had already stripped them. This is the first time
ever that deer have eaten peonies.  What I must do as soon as I
have a few minutes is cut down the mass of Artemisia 'Powis
Castle' that filled the front bed. It was pretty magnificent this 
summer, especially before the deer ate the handsome red Caladiums
that were growing up through the silver foliage, but now that it has 
frozen it looks awful.  'Powis Castle' survives about one winter out
of three.  I guess it depends on the weather.  
Judy, I know you are in a different climate, but here we would not
cut forsythia at this time of the year.  It would have already set buds
for next spring, and if we pruned it now there would be no bloom in
the spring.  Maybe it's different where you are.

Not much here. We had a couple of frosty nights,but it's warm (40-55) and 
rainy the past few days. I need to prune my forsythia, but it isn't really 
cold enough yet. Grapes are done, Walnuts are leafless with nuts still 
falling. Buds on the winter blooming heathers. Trying to get in the mood to 
decorate for Christmas. We bought a new couch, then had to get a new washer 
so have already spent more than we planned. We don't have much debt so we're 
OK, just feeling cautious with the economy so slow.
