.....and yet an evening weather update:
I take it back, (see update below)....it IS sticking!
Since I posted about our overnight freeze, guess what? We are having snow this afternoon!
It isn't sticking, because we did warm up to around 60 today. The flakes are big and fluffy, but there are quite a few. Here are some photos from our front steps...that's as far as I wanted to go!
The temperature dropped drastically this week. We were having nice 70-something weather and then crash!....and unexpected overnight freeze! And the poor little pumpkins didn't like it one bit.
I'm not sure what we could have done to protect them. Everyone would have had to give up their bed sheets, and I'm still not sure I would have had enough to cover them. Plus, it was "unexpected" by the local weathermen. So, there wasn't much of a warning.
On a very small scale, we feel like farmers who have lost their crop!
Since we have never grown pumpkins before, I don't know if the semi-orangey pumpkins will continue to turn, or if we will lose the patch. If you have any suggestions, please let us know!
In the meantime, I'll try to do a little internet research.
The latest fashion in Bangle-wear:
On a happier note, I've had my first ever wholesale order! Now, for those of you who offer wholesale, this may not sound very exciting....I'm still putting together the order and it is a lot of work! But, I'm VERY honored that they contacted me and thought my silhouettes would be complementary to their museum shop.
I guess I should try and paint a silhouette of Andrew Jackson?
Have a great weekend!
