The groundhog called for an early spring. The weatherman says it could drop below freezing three nights this week.
Regardless of which expert is correct, the 16-year old schefflera house plant was moved outside this weekend. It may be too early but I cannot take watching this poor plant drop another leaf. Yes, constantly picking up the dropped leaves is frustrating but I'm sad that it hasn't adjusted to the thermostat this year. Maybe it's getting too old. Maybe it just wants to go outside and play.
Bad move? What are the 'official' rules on moving house plants? (I should've grabbed a farmers' almanac!) Aunt June used to wait until Memorial day when she opened the pool but that's just unrealistic. Right?
