Forlorn November

November needs sunshine! But it is in short supply. Savannah is known for its shaded paths and streets, the mighty live oaks draped with Spanish moss casting sun beams in many directions. But when the cloud cover grows thick and the temperatures sink, the magic disappears. Even the happy blooms of a stalwart camellia don’t lift the mood.

Our average temperature in November should be in the 60s which allows for some days in the 80s, but I for one do not want that allowance to mean we must endure the 40s.

We almost dipped to freezing two nights ago. I almost had to purchase a cover for the garden in previous years. Will this be the year?

The way I go on, you’d hardly imagine I was born and raised in the Hudson Valley and have spent most of my life in the Northeast! I know snow

Snow and ice

But I hope we don’t see another cold winter like the one a couple years past! The rule about no Christmas until after Thanksgiving may have to be disregarded this year! Give me sparkle with outdoor parties on the marsh and blooming camellias!
