Flame Weeding Garden in February

My season started yesterday morning.  We had a dusting of snow that changed to sleet and then cold drizzle.

When I wake up to rain I think of one thing.  Flame weeding.

We’ve had an unseasonably mild winter.  It’s been so mild a better term for this winter is early spring.

The winter annual weeds have thrived.  Patches of weeds are ready to take off with the warmer days.

After I put the kids on the bus I went right to the propane tank.  The ground was damp, aka fire resistant, and ready for flame weeding.

The cold drizzle turned to downpours during the day and high winds and thunderstorms last night.

I look forward to picking up branches in the yard today.

Frost on Window

Last weekend the temperature went down to -12.6 degrees Fahrenheit in Newtown, Connecticut.  I’ve never seen temperatures that low in this area.  The previous low was -6 or -3 last year.

The frost created beautiful crystals on the window.  I’m sure there’s a scientific explanation for why.  I’m just going to enjoy their beauty.
