With the clouds and the winds moving fast and furious this morning, it’s a good time to pull in a couple of archive posts that previously touched on the topic of microclimates. http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2011/02/brain-freeze.html
For anyone considering the ‘where and what to plant’ decision in the garden, even if that shovel doesn’t hit the dirt until next spring, determining your property’s microclimate is a must-do task.
Unfortunately, this morning’s strong winds emphasize my bad luck with wind chimes. Big or small, these musical elements that I love to hang just don’t survive, despite where I locate them. So if you don’t want to keep replacing your plants, shrubs and trees like the wind chimes, consider taking a peek at your property’s microclimates. Like the words from ‘A Walk to Remember’ by Nicholas Sparks, “Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it.” Pay attention to this invisible garden detail.
