In my garden, it feels like June. Today’s high temperature was 78F. All the doors are open to the warm breeze. You would think it was spring, except that the trees have lost their leaves, and the spiders and other insects are slowing down like time worn clocks. The sun goes down earlier, and that’s when you feel the slight chill of winter’s embrace.
The roses are beautiful, blooming in twos and threes, but the plants, except for the Knockouts, are unsightly and leggy with ink spotted leaves.
The spiders are still doing their thing though, just a bit more slowly. The cooler nighttime temperatures make them slow enough for even me to photograph. This one was leisurely doing her thing today. At least, I think she is a “she.”
The lake is beautiful and calm, but storm clouds approach letting us know Mother Nature is still in control no matter what we may think. It isn’t spring, but no freeze is expected until after Thanksgiving. In central Oklahoma, our average first freeze for the year occurs between November 1st and November 10th according to the Oklahoma Climatological Survey map.
That’s all my musings for this afternoon. Many thanks to Garden Faerie who created Mish Mash Monday.
