Cover me, I’m going in

Still throwing the frost cover over the mango tree at night to keep in the gentle heat from the Christmas lights. I always set several rocks around the bottom edge to help hold it in place.

But several times of late I’ve gone to take the cover off first thing in the morning…and all the smaller rocks are no longer there. Just the bigger heavier ones. We get very little wind around here and particularly not in that spot.

I think something’s gotten acclimated to the lack of nighttime dark in that area, especially given the sweetness of all those enticing blossom clusters. I can just picture a long possum nose pushing under there to check things out or a raccoon casting the first stone.

I put more rocks down tonight. In pairs, too.

It is snowing here this AM and about 28F! Keep describing those blossoms, ok!?

As for skype or facetime, it sounds more fun at your house! Yes, we do it often here, but only if Mommy and Daddy are holding the ipad. Otherwise, it is too fun to hang up, call someone else, or throw the thing across the room…our three year old twins find talking to grandparents is not a spectator sport here. 🙂

I wonder if someone is creeping in to take advantage of a warm tent!
