Re: OT - another cold front has arrived

Brrr-I'm chilly for you. It's supposed to be 54 here and we might actually get some rain!! It's been very dry this January. I spent all day in the garage today, cleaning, ripping out a crappy old cabinet (can we say euwwww- disgusting). Apparently that is where the mice had been living last winter- even found a petrified mouse carcass- yuck! Anyway, got all of that out- now to figure out how to get it to the dump! Got another shelving unit, and at least got stuff stacked on shelves, but the whole thing needs to be organized. But still.... visible progress!! I have to do a little more tomorrow no matter what, so that we can get the other car in the garage- but after that I think I'm going to leave this project for a week or two, and come back to it then. I'm rather sick of spending my weekends in the garage....even if it is cleaner now.

to 7 overnight....burr!  The bad news is all my snow melted this week so the
plants are on their own. (although they are predicting snow showers for
tomorrow- we will see)

Subject: [CHAT] OT - another cold front has arrived

Here we
go again.  At 4:00 it was beautiful - 63 degrees - gardening in
By 5:30 it was down to the lower 40's and the North wind is
still howling.
Thank goodness I got most everything done today before it
hit.  Finally got
the last of that flat of purple rain pansies, snapdragons
and irises planted
by then.  Then I had to bring all the pots of tender
stuff in again.  Ugh.
But I dearly love my colorful ornamental peppers
(Aurora & Nosegay) and my
walking iris so they're worth the trouble.  Also
got my Vera Jameson sedum
relocated out to the new xeriscape bed (was my
pepper bed - a real water hog)
and watered in just in time.  Hope Oklahoma
doesn't get blasted again like the
last time.  *sigh*
