Early Cold Spell

Ocracoke doesn't usually get cold weather so early in the season and boy is it cold.
I love growing things and that's not easy on this island. Between salt wind and salt flooding one soon learns to plant only what grows here naturally or what has been able to adapt like roses, oleander, and wisteria. Anything else you grow in pots and keep your fingers crossed. Then when a cold snap comes.... well we'll get to that tomorrow!


PS from Philip: I have an apology to the reader who made a comment on our December 4 post. I didn't understand the context of your comment. For a full explanation please go to the comments for that date. Thank you.

    I thought maybe I was losing it. I read that comment, but when I checked a little later-no comment. Whew what a relief!
