Winter is by far the longest season in North Pole. Snow can fall in September and usually covers the ground by October. In October we anxiously wait for the snow to cover the peonies. Hopefully, we will have over a foot before the cold sets in in November. Day light fades fast and by December we are enjoying hours of dawn and sunset, but only three hours of sun time
low in the southern sky. Temperatures regularly dip to -40 and occasionally as low as -60. The moon is high in the sky, stars fill the long nights, and the aurora dances across the frozen horizon.
The peonies are asleep, but we are busy working on future plans for North Pole Peonies.
