Dreaming of Summer – Part II
We just got the weather statistics in for the month of January. The mean temperature was about 4 degrees Celcius milder than the average for January. The lowest temperature during the month was –22 degrees C., but most days have seen temps between -5 and -15 C. And this has been the case for the winter months so far. If this continues for February (fingers are crossed), it will have been a very good winter indeed. Our shrubs and perennial will think they’re in zone 4. That should give us a great overwintering survival rate.
Now, that’s something to look forward to!
