Sorry Jim. Down here in the lowlands we also have been experiencing above average temps - in the 60s. Great for us, but and beginning to worry about the trees. I have a feeling that this will again be a bad winter. Bundle up and enjoy the view from inside your home.

jim - the day after x-mas, we had sunshine and low 50s (f) for temps which is highly unusual for us here in SE wisconsin... i went beachcombing along lake michigan which was quite fortuitous as i found a small, perfect piece of driftwood for a phoenix graft on a small shimpaku that i was all but ready to give up on styling after a couple large mistakes on small material (but learning along the way)...

so this phoenix graft may just (ironically) give it new life...

that is, if i didnt (again ironically) kill it in the process...

will post pics soon.

Since it was going to get so cold, we brought some of the blooms inside:

Very nice. One of my Japanese apricots is about to flower, so I'll be doing similar myself soon.

Jackie's doing; not mine. But I thank you for her.
