Still Hanging On... and Thanksgiving

Winter is here. Yesterday morning the landscape ground covers felt their first light blanket of frost. This morning's low is 31º F,  and below freezing temperature is forecast for the upcoming week.

The wind and rain have come, and most of this is now history...
