Scarecrow's Garden Journal Notes: November 2013:

Not much has been happening in the garden...

Doc's Mum helping in the garden during 2011.




This November is a month I would rather forget. The only positive thing was that we spent a lot of time with all our family...the reason was the negative. 
Doc's dear, sweet mother lost her battle with Alzheimer's last week. At only 74 years of age it was tragic to watch what this disease did to someone we loved. In many ways her loss is a (very sad) relief.






Temperatures this month:
Lowest Min 1.2C
Highest Min 14.8C
Lowest Max 18.4C
Highest Max 37.3C
1 mm Rain which fell as scattered, light showers during the month

  1. I just bought a block in the Murraylands. Your blog is just the resource I need. Seems out climates are pretty similar, just you get a bit more rain.
