It was surprisingly nice enough outside today where I could sit and work in the open air, instead of from inside the house. It’s nice to sit outside again, it looks so pretty with all of our poinsettias back out. They were in the shed for a couple of days to protect them from the cold. We weren’t taking any chances that “garden” poinsettias would perish and the orchids were just starting to bloom so all were sheltered until the temps warmed.
Last night only got down to the low 50’s so it was ok for them all to be out. We’ll be warming up to the 60’s as overnight temps for a bit so the plants can stay out. It does get cold here in January so they might get moved again. I would bring them into the house but I don’t feel like chasing the lizards around that live in my plants. One lizard has dibs on our outdoor wicker chair and he hides in the cushion. He was originally at our Lake Placid (Florida, not NY) house and hid in the chair, so now he lives with us in Jensen Beach.
Today, I decided to carve a holiday candle. It sort of fit with sitting out here with the plants. I might trim this one. We’ll see.
