2°C (35.6°F) Sunny all day until deep purple clouds snuffed out the sun, leaving a wide gash of bright sky that slowly faded to black. Only the knife edge of the moon is showing. A dark night.
-2°C (28.4°F) Not much to say. Just thinking. I have a lot to do this week, with Christmas coming on.
I noticed a couple of trees need pruning, too. If this warm weather holds (and it looks like it will), I’ll try to get to that this week. It’s a lot easier to see their branch structures when they’re bare, and these two crabapples look like they were trimmed drastically and then ignored, so the branches that grew from the old cuts are now much too large, and have overtaken what was the top of the tree.
