All this week will look like this.

It’s hard for me to be cheerful when everyday looks like this! However, it isn’t snowing, so perhaps maybe I should be happy about that, and believe me, I am! The prediction is for a mild winter as far as snow, but very cold temperatures. That I am not happy about. (Sometimes I feel like I can never be glad about anything.) My garden is zone 5B sliding to 4A at times, which means many of my perennials survive here because they have the insulation of a deep layer of snow. The snow protects them from the harshest of sub-zero temperatures.
