I can tell it is winter because......
The cherry trees leaves are all gone - but do make a colourful spot in the the yard!
Asparagus is dying off, as is the basil living near it.
The garlic is already up and about! My little green soldiers.
Broccoli is getting hammered by caterpillers. But I am now winning since I am doing a pick and squash daily.
Our house painting still hasn't been finished. I am sure it will be done in another month.....or so!
Now this has nothing to do with winter but I scabbed this from Mum and Dad when they were going to throw it out. I am going to fix the broken bit, paint it and hang it on my fence. I really love it!
How can you tell it is winter/summer at your place??
