Walking in Winter Weather in Roseville CA
Happy Winter Y’all! And don’t we love that there are so many fun things to do in winter weather in Roseville CA and the surrounding Sacramento Valley area?
So far in the last few weeks, we’ve enjoyed off and on days of lovely rain that we always need and appreciate. And that often leads to bundling up in long warm sweaters and jackets and heading out for delightful walk options including around cheery creeks. Two of my older grandkids and I enjoyed doing just that while they were visiting for the New Year. And it was fun to see so many others out and about as well, in spite of it being a bit chilly.
Still and all, chilly is way warmer than the snow days that my other two sets of kids and grandkids enjoy where they live. Happily, they LOVE the snow and I have enjoyed it myself when visiting. But I have to be honest. I do love to tell real estate clients when they ask me, “does it snow in Roseville California” – very VERY rarely and never more than a teeny tiny bit! 😊 And after all, we can usually find plenty of snow fun all around us if we head up the mountains. Plus we can enjoy beach fun that’s also quite close – usually in the opposite direction.
Gardening Doesn’t Stop for Winter Weather in Roseville CA
While much of the country’s gardens are totally shut down for winter weather, many of us in our Roseville Sacramento area are still enjoying a handful of lovely roses, even as we prepare to enjoy our soon-to-bloom camellias as well as “cue [our rose] bushes to take a winter nap” by pruning them, as SacDigsGardening.com pointed out in her December 27 article full of great nuggets of gardening tips and info for our area.
Now don’t get me wrong. We still have chilly winters. So I have a ton of lovely soft fingerless gloves for for arthritis fingers, since I do have arthritis. They work GREAT! My hands stay warm inside and out and I can still text and type with ease. I would recommend regular garden gloves, though, in the garden if you start your own pruning. Much better protection for that. 😊
Speaking of pruning and gardens, Roseville’s garden classes are starting soon. I just checked and the first two are totally full including one on pruning. However, the third one – Pruning with Purpose on February 7, 2024 – still has plenty of room and possibly some of the other classes following may have openings as well. If you are interested but haven’t got around to signing up, this is the PERFECT time to do so! 😊 Click here for the Pruning With Purpose class. Also, the Green Gardener at Home Multi-Week Series that I mentioned in an earlier post still has several spots available. Click here to check it out and sign up.
Don’t forget to pop over to Green Acres Nursery’s website regularly. They have an awesome calendar each month with gardening tips, tricks, and seasonal suggestions. Click here for the latest!
