Does that mean this year has two "longest nights"? Find a friend and
make the most of them, sez I.
Loss of a pine tree, two Springs past, really improved late day sunlight
availability to my garden but it's still deprived this time of year.
Morning shade from nearby trees is compounded by the fact that (the few)
deciduous trees casting morning shadows have not yet begun to lose
leaves to any significant degree. No, not "global warming" but just a
typical Florida "winter".
we have had a light freezing rain and drizzle the
past few days making the drive a skating rink. a
day or two of sunshine would be nice to break that
up. we haven't seen much sun at all in the past
month, perhaps a few days worth when added up.
some snow cover is nice to keep the ground
insulated. i'm glad to have snow cover than to
have the ground bare and subject to repeated frost
thaw cycles. those are tough on plants and the
dry cold sucks moisture out of the soil.
as for the solstice, happy solstice. that's
as good as it gets for celebration... we're over
the hump and heading back to spring. :) :) :)
The 2-3 inches of rain we've had in the last 24 hours has melted the last
of the ice and snow from two weeks ago ... Brushy Creek <runs down the
middle of our land> , which is usually a series of almost-stagnant puddles
this time of year is big enough right now to float a canoe - better be a
good canoe-ist because it's running FAST !
