“And I’ve got to get myself back to the garden…”, this phrase from the song, Woodstock, kept echoing through my mind. 60 degrees on November 20th in the Lehigh Valley is unusual. With the sun setting as early as 4:40 I knew my time was limited. After planting 102 tulip bulbs I began clearing leaves from flower beds.
Unfortunately I disturbed one small insect trying to slumber.
With two hours of daylight remaining, I decided to put away the garden gloves and take Maddie for a walk. The afternoon sun was obscured by clouds and it appeared much later than 2:30.
With warmer than average temperatures for November, I found Spring weeds rising from the earth and setting seed.
I can only hope the ice and snow of Winter comes late and leaves early! ENJOY . . .
