Ground Hogs and Harvest Tables in the Valley of the Two Wallas…
I think that I have said that the winter weather in the Walla Walla Valley is ever changing but generally the winter is mild. We had at least one day in January with a high temperature in the 60s but the last two mornings it was 15 to 17 degrees.
Yesterday, Ground Hog Day, it was cold but sunny… what does that mean about the start of Spring? I’m hoping that the Ground Hog gives us a break. Even though he probably saw his shadow (if we even have ground hogs around here) it was cold, and so hopefully Spring will be just “around the corner”.
January has flown by which I guess is not unexpected. I spent at least 40 hours building a Harvest Table, in January, as well as maintaining regular open hours in the Shady Lawn Antiques store.
Here is a picture of the just completed Harvest Table. My friends, Ron and Leslie Klicker, owners of Klicker’s Antiques Store, are going to Seattle and will deliver it to Blair and Creagh this weekend.
