micro-climates

Well, even though we've been getting 'freezing' temperatures my basil in the front yard is still alive. This is odd since basil burns and dies in temps below 40 degrees. I guess that my front yard is a warm oasis? Tomorrow night's low is supposed to be back to normal low temps - 52 degrees.
Gotta go turn the light out on the kids - Giselle was out late at a Brownie event until 8 and I had to take Paul with me to go get her. They're finally ready.

Basil was the only thing that actually survived my garderner's touch of death this year. I never even picked it to eat. I just thought it was pretty. I had good intentions, though. Smelled good too....
