We had our first snowfall last night! The amount was negligible, but is so far sticking around this morning. We're also still experiencing the really high winds of our first Nor'easter, a storm that hits us from the east rather than west, and usually brings rain, sleet or snow. The wind has been HOWLING since last night, debris is everywhere from trees, and I can see the "rocker-swing seat thingy" is upended and about 20 feet away from where it usually sits. The temps are in the low 50s though, so I'll still get in my bike ride later. The sun seems to be trying to come out too.
Not getting the message yet, this small geranium in one of the cast-iron Victorian planters is still blooming. Well, just a little bit. I brought the large pink geranium inside last week, it was just too healthy to throw out. It will most likely be leggy by spring, yellowing etc, but in the past I've kept geraniums 8-10 years when I had the room for them inside during the winter months.
