Sad ReturnPosted: January 11, 2017
After a weekend trip, I returned home to sadly find almost all my plants had taken a hard hit from a lower than expected freeze. I had put most of the tropicals into the garage, but I wasn’t overly worried about the rest of the yard. Even if I was home there was not much I could have done.
If you would like to see the carnage up close, click on photos to make a slide show.
Not all plants were lost and above are some photos of the tough ones. I was happy to see (the second photo) that the Poppy seedlings made it. The baby caterpillars are still alive and the hummingbirds have chosen to stay. Needless to say, the weather has already changed and we are heading back up towards 80 degrees!
Here’s to starting the New Year with lots of exercise (cutting down all the dead plants) and new beginnings in the garden.
