It’s 25°F this morning here in southern New Hampshire while up north it has dropped to single digits. There is snow forecasted for tomorrow and Friday. Good thing we put the snow stakes in yesterday.
He took an 18″ piece of pipe, added a cap, and we fit that over the orange stake and pound away just like a fence post driver. Works great.
But, today the sun is shining so I’ll enjoy that while I do a little quilting.
I’m working on a wall hanging with some history to it. Back in the 1970’s, my Mom made me some candlewick embroidery pieces that I made into throw pillows. Along the way, I cut the panels off and stored them. I ran across them recently and decided I’d better do something with them.
I added four panels with pansies appliquéd on them to give me a total of nine to work with. Pansies were her favorite flower, and blue was her favorite color. I’ll be sure to show the finished product.
Transitioning from being outside in nature every day to enjoying being inside is challenging for me. I even have to work at blogging because this time of year, my idea bank gets kind of low.
I’m busy on the computer every day for hours at a time, but that’s work for Master Gardeners. I’ve been updating the website, doing twice weekly blog posts, handling Instagram and Facebook, working on a logo, and creating a slide show for our December meeting.
But, alas, no real gardening. I know my blogging friends in Australia are gearing up for summer, and those in England and Ireland aren’t totally done, so tell us – are you still gardening or are you transitioning to winter activities as well?
