Re: Exceptional Weather Comes to an End

Settle?  Sounds pretty good to me Gene!  :-)  
I'm just praying that we'll get some rain, any rain before the end of
the year. Like gardening in the Sahara around here. Only one other year
was I still watering in November, and that was when our drought was so
bad, little ol' podunk Henderson County made the national news. I've
lost some things, but hoping others will resurrect in Spring.

Only March will tell at this point. Put up a new bird feeder this
morning, took 3 tries in different spots to find a piece of ground I
could hammer the pole into. Had to put it in the corner of a flower bed.
The yard's like dusty black concrete.

Gene - your peony beds sound fab.  Hope to see pics this coming Spring!!
