Tis the (Dry) Season

The tiny bit of greenery here prompts a garden related post which have been few and far between, but the original intent of the blog.  We’ve had nearly four weeks with no moisture.  There was a chance of snow on Saturday, but chances seemed more slim per the report this evening.  The temperatures have been quite cold, but only for the past week.  Tomorrow, as well as Friday, it is predicted to be mid 50.  It is possible that we have gone this long without moisture in previous late fall seasons, but the recollection escapes me if we have.  The next couple of days will be good house painting weather though.  The contractor has been here almost a month and is finally ready to put on some paint… I can’t wait!!

  1. I can’t believe that it’s still warm and dry there! Hope they get the paint on while it lasts! Then it will be real pretty when the winter hits!

  2. Good luck with the new house paint! The wreath looks gorgeous! Ironically, we in Southern California are above our average rainfall quota, but we can always use it. I was driving with a friend the other day (about an hour from home) when the heavens burst open. She exclaimed, “Oh no!” They had just put the second coat of paint on her house an hour earlier. Luckily, she had asked the painter to come 3 days before, but he had delayed it, so he covered the cost of repainting!

  3. Pretty! As soon as I saw your door display, I remembered I was going to make one for my door today.

  4. montucky, i can’t believe it either! i need to water, but with this guy walking around my house every day i’m afraid i should hold off.

    bekaboo and sandy, i wish the wreath was mine, but this photo was taken at a vintage market last weekend. i don’t need to be drawing any attention to my house right now… it looks a bit diseased with half the paint off and raw cedar showing!
