2019-10-09: The last clematis of 2019. It was 62° when photo was taken Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.; 48 hours later it’s 35° and the weather service says: “FREEZE WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 11 PM THIS EVENING TO 9 AM CDT SATURDAY. Temperatures are expected to drop to between 29 and 32 degrees Friday night.” Yep, and we’re already seeing commercials for Christmas. Well, Spring is right around the corner. I should service the lawn mower this weekend, the grass will be knee high sooner than I can sneeze.
