Hanging On

The weather Thursday was ridiculously warm at 63o F and also very welcome. I needed no further encouragement,opened the door to the sunroom, and sank into my chair. Bliss. Looking out the window I saw the geranium The Brother and his wife gave me for Mother's Day. I did a double take. It was blooming! In December! Several pink flowers and buds all over the plant. In December!
Made me think how I cling to those last days of warm temps. I brought the plant inside. Hopefully, I won't kill it and will have the reminder of warmer weather when I look out the kitchen window and see snow.

What's the weather been like in your neck of the woods?


  1. cold and snowing, icy roads :o(

    But at least there is snow now. This is not a feeling that is shared by everyone, but I think that if it's going to be cold, there might as well be snow. I reserve the right to change my mind once all my live-in snow shovelers move out.

  2. LOL Linda, too funny! It's snowing here too. We went from 63o on Thurs. To storm coming up the coast, but too far out and we'll only get rain. Then still far out, but the backside will drag in cold air so we will get a dusting. Last night the dusting became 3-5" (I know that's a dusting to y'all in The Land of Here There Be Dragons). The storm started earlier than expected so don't know if our dusting has increased.

  3. My mom had a "last rose of summer" in her garden still blooming, and then it snowed!
