Winter will return, or maybe not?
Winter will return the newspapers screamed from the news stands and the online weather predictions showed temperatures down to -14C (6,8F). Lots of snow was going to fall as well. This is what many of us have feared but hoped wouldn’t happen. Just before I started writing here I checked the weather predictions again and now it looks very different. Mostly rain and above 0C (32F). Now they all show that we’ll have another storm coming in again. It’s very difficult to take any predictions seriously when they show that huge difference in just a few hours 🙂
I had hoped that it was time to stop feeding the deers, not because I don’t like it but with weather like what we’ve had so far they should be able to care for themselves. I also had hoped that it was time to stop buying fire logs. Even if it won’t be that cold I think I need to continue with both for another week or two, just in case we actually will get winter again 🙂
I had also hoped it would be possible to place some of the small trees I’ve sown outdoors now, I need that space for other trees that I want to sow right now 🙂 Well I’m not sure sow is the right word because they have been placed in the fridge for quite some time and now those seeds have germinated. They need pots with soil and rather soon I would guess. I have also taken two cuttings from my Osage orange just now and now I can’t find any place to put the pot 🙂 I guess I must place lots of pots down in my cool cellar for a while and try to remember watering everything down there, something I tend to forget 🙂
I had to go down to the cellar to check if I had to water the plants since I wrote that I tend to forget it 🙂 I had to water and many things have started to grow again down there. Several mock oranges had new leafs and my apricots had big buds. It never got especially cold down there this winter so spring sprung early in my cellar 🙂 Most trees and bushes outdoors seems to react on the length of the day more than to how warm it is so even if it will get cold again most of tem will survive without any damages.
The coffee is ready (yes I’m out of tea 🙂 ) and now it’s time for a sandwich or two. I’ve had to scrape ice from the car windows almost every morning this week and I doubt that tomorrow will be different. I don’t care if the nights are cold but I really want it to stay warm during days now.
Have a great day!
