This morning, I changed the beds to flannel sheets in anticipation of a couple of nights in the 20s. We'll get a few snow flurries this afternoon and evening, but no accumulation. I'm happy about the no accumulation part.
The fig tree looks sad since its crispy brown leaves were blown away. Ornamental Bradford Pear and Japanese Maples still hold leaves and color. I now realize why Bradford Pear is used so much in landscape. It is the first to flower in the Spring and among the last to lose leaves in Autumn.
I've located the electric stapler and am planning on starting the process of putting the plastic over the chicken house windows a little at a time. Time to check goat supplies and meds and begin stocking pine shavings and square bales in the Maternity barn.
