We had our first snow yesterday. It stuck to the grass but not the road. It lasted until the sun came out. Last night we had more snow and this is sticking. I am sad to see fall end, but I wouldn’t trade our winter for a Texas summer no-way, no-how!! I have to confess, though, ever since I discovered Texas garden blogs, it’s been a bit easier to get through the winter. A couple of days ago, Bill Hopkins of Prairie Point posted a photo of his ‘Valentine’ rose, and it sure is a looker. Helps you remember that life still goes on somewhere else when everything’s gone dormant in your neck of the woods.
When dealing with frost it is always best to be paranoid. In the spring never think it is too late for one more frost to come. And in the fall never think it too early.
