Right now it’s -7°F outside, with a wind chill of -33°. I grabbed the picture of the frosted lilac yesterday while it was merely cold. In about four months it will bloom, but it may be a long four months if this week is indicative of what is to come.
Inside, the very red Catt is still blooming. The current batch of blossoms opened shortly before Thanksgiving, and with a little luck they might still be open on Christmas.
