.........has come to western Washington. It's rained cats & dogs all day and the temperature is hovering just under 60*. I got wet taking the garbage can out to the curb, so came in and lit a fire in the wood stove and now it's a little warm in here.
I almost pruned my roses way down the other day and now I'm glad I didn't. Pruning them now & then having this warmer temperature would only stimulate new growth. Then when & if it freezes, they could be damaged. The last blooms have turn to hips but I think I'll wait to do the winter pruning until after our first freeze. At least I'm getting to enjoy my beautiful hanging baskets as long as it stays warm like this. They are all still blooming nicely.
I think I'm going to create a "travel" journal (oops BLOG) for story & pictures from our trip. I have downloaded all the pictures so maybe tomorrow I can get started on it.
Well, that's all for now....I'm going to go make some popcorn because"The Office" is about to start and I don't want to miss a minute of it.
Until next time........Linda
