Pitch black by six o'clock here
last night. Poor creatures across the river in central time saw it
pitch black by five o'clock in the late afternoon. Heavy cloud, and inches of
icy rain, and gusty wind and a suggestion of frost, could even have been
snowing. So this morning it was a surprise to see a new Asparagus
spear, easily eighteen inches from her crown.
And it's a worry.
Raspberry in that
corner of the Vegetable Garden too have shrugged off these colder nights and
occasional hard frost. Handfuls are still gathered amongst glee and jumping
around. The Artistic, naturally have enthusiasm, they seek the vibrant and
happy, they look on the bright side. And recently there were two of them
here, setting no good example I suspect.
