Our December weather has been unusual this year. It took a long time before our first freeze and then we’ve had a couple of days here and there that were in the 70’s. But, as always, after warm winter weather, a bad storm follows.
Because of the bouts of warmer temperatures, I’ve had some fun visitors to my garden that we wouldn’t normally see in late fall and early winter.
This guy greeted me at my door last night. I left the light above the door on and it had attracted some insects. I think he was hoping for a meal. In order to open the door, I had to scoot him on his way.
I put some of my potted plants indoors during the cold nights and after I brought this salvia back outside, it attracted a couple of butterflies.
