a "light" blanket

It may not even freeze this winter but just in case it does, the lights went up early. They do seem to aid in deterring Jack Frost from turning the tender plants to total mush. Of course, it does help that there is a fair amount of tree canopy overhead. The lights work here in the Sacramento area because we rarely get a "hard" freeze. One of the Anna's hummingbirds just kept right on lapping up the nectar from the orange Wild Birds Unlimited feeder on the kitchen window while I strung up the lights. (yet another pang of guilt. If the developer has his way with this 2.5 acres of trees & shrubs, where are all "my" little birds going to nest and find food? I'm not sleeping worth a damn these days.)
