"Dang, JD . . . We are in DA CAR, not DA CLUB!" So said my wife to me last week as we were driving around with my kids. If you know me just a little, you know I love music. I love all kinds of music. I love to hear the instruments. I love to hear the words. And I am not ashamed. Anyway, I know I'm starting to sound just like my dad nowadays. I catch myself saying stuff like the following to my sons: "All that music you listen to sounds the same. It's just somebody "rap talking" with a bass drum and somebody snapping their fingers in the background. Why don't you listen to this? This is real music." Then I turn on Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, or even some good ole Hootie and The Blowfish. But for the life of me I don't get Post Malone or Khalid or Lil Nas X singing about Paninis! Yes, I know I have completely just defined what it is to be an old man. I get it. I'm not going to sit here and tell you that all the old music is good. I love a lot of bad music too. Just ask my friends in my band. But my point is when I am playing MY music in the car, I tend to turn it up a little louder than what my wife and kids like. I just like loud music. So when my wife finally told me "We in DA CAR, not in DA CLUB", I just had to laugh. She was right, as usual, and I turned it down. Speaking of turn it down, get ready for tomorrow. Cold weather is coming. Don't worry, it's not getting cold enough to cause much or any damage to much of anything. Except for mosquitoes hopefully. If you do have any questions though, please give us a call.
Cold Weather Tips It's going to get cold the next few days, but not "it's time to panic" cold. If you have Spring and Summer annuals it is time to switch them out. They are not going to make it through the cold we've got coming. Good news is, you can replace them with Pansies, Violas, and Snapdragons. They all do great in the cold weather through Spring. If you have newly planted citrus. Place a bed-sheet over it for the night. They will be fine either way, but it will help to keep any leaves from getting burnt. If you have citrus that has been planted for a year or more, there is no need to protect them unless we get 26 degrees or below. All of your other basic trees and shrubs are fine, don't worry. Again, please call us if you have any questions at 334-794-6774.
