Yes. I still have dianthus and anemone blooming, and it's frightening. On a happier note, your tree is lovely and the red room is very inviting.

KRISTIN — The red room is definitely a perfect location to showcase for Christmas.


I grew up on Wisconsin and moved to the Pacific Northwest about 40 years ago. Even after all this time I still find the winters here way too green…and wet. I especially miss waking up to the filtered gray/white light on a snowy day.
I hope the Madison weather cooperates and your Christmas is appropriately white.

CHRISTINE — I don't like winter driving but I love the garden covered with snow — for looks and protection. Going from our climate to the PNW is a big leap to get used to. ​

I love your red room with the cheery pink tree! Having spent my life in one or another area of SoCal, a snowy Christmas day is almost beyond my imagining but I think I'd enjoy it. The Los Angeles Times recently ran a story predicting that climate change probably eliminate snow in our mountain areas during this century, which will not only disappoint people near and far for personal reasons but will fundamentally destroy the water system California has relied on forever.

KRIS P. - Winter sports are a big money maker here, but we depend on snow to protect plants and for snow melt to replenish our groundwater.

Beautiful Christmas display! It was chilly this morning (34) but still no killing frost in my garden. We bit the bullet and bought flights to Spokane for Christmas, horrendously expensive. I was tempted to see if we could drive but it would be just my luck that a ice storm would happen in the Gorge and we'd be stuck at home.
