Nice trees Dave! At what temp would you shelter or bring in a recently repotted maple?
Good question... morning lows tomorrow and Sunday predicted to be mid 30's, so perhaps a touch of frost but that's fine as all my maples are in development mode. The long range forecast is calling for a possible hard freeze toward the end of next wee with temps in low 30's to upper 20's... that could be a problem. I live in fairly protected micro climate and my yard has typically stayed 5-7 degrees warmer then the forecasted lows during the spring and fall. I'll be watching the temps carefully over the next few weeks to see if that holds true. Any chance of the soil freezing and they're either going in the garage or under the deck and pushed together.... again.

I mean, I’m the one who has to buy the beers! Dave says that if HE tried to buy them, he’d get carded!

Wait...
Do they offer senior discounts then? Bawahahahaha, sorry first thing came into my head...if they carded him. What is It...AARP card or something?

Cool dog though Dave! All serious now...a beaut!

No frost in your yard after February, for 8 years??
Better find some wood to knock on...
It's funny living on a steep hill like I do. I swear that during these transitional periods between seasons, with warm days and cold nights, the cooler air basically just slides through my yard and settles lower, and this, in turn, displaces some warm air that moderates the temps up on the hill. I can't come up with a better hypothesis as to why it happens, but it does. I'm never comfortable with the forecast being below freezing and not doing anything, so I'll probably be throwing a lot of bed sheets onto my trees this weekend and hopefully (?????) won't need it.

Peculiar...I had not checked my post prior to posting...but I had commented on this photo...then went to do a quote. My comment on photo erased apparently. Never have had that happen. So I didn't check to see if there.

The forecast called for 1 - 3 inches of rain here today. Wish it would stop :p This was taken a minute or two ago -

Nice pics Dave. What is the tree in the 2nd pic? If I were just looking at the lower trunk and nebari
I would've sworn it was a Bald cypress tree.

I think we were west of the accumulating snow line by 20 miles or less. We have had light snow for quite a while, but too warm for even a dusting.

Dodged bullet #1... the closest weather station to my address is reading 30 F at 7 am... the thermometer outside my kitchen is reading 39 F. 2 or three more morning like this and I should be in the clear here.
