Bloom Thyme Friday: Frosty News

Here’s the frosty news report… Last night I got home in time to assess the damage. Yes, there is some. When you have a garden as large as mine, it is difficult to cover. As much as I have enjoyed the early spring, it sure is hard to see burnt leaves and buds bending down that I know wonโ€™t get to bloom. ๐Ÿ˜ฆย ย  I guess you would call me greedy when it comes to blooms.

All in all, the damage is very minimal. The 10-day forecast looks good and includes some much needed rain.

More Roses

Last night I also planted Red Drift Meigalpio Roses as a border for my new bed. (Mr. G actually hung a huge flashlight thingy for me! He is the BEST!) I think the little Red Drift blooms look so cute and will be great to use in arrangements.

Red Drift…
Here’s how they will look when they grow up…

Red Driftยฎ has the most petite flowers of all of the Driftยฎ Roses. It is perfect for use in front of border plantings. Red Driftยฎ makes a beautiful statement when it drapes naturally over a rock wall or edge. Mature height is less than 1ยฝ’ with a wider spread. Great flower power and disease resistance.

Frost-free Zone

Things in the frost-free Potting Shed are doing very well! Take a look at the Mortgage Lifter tomatoes (seeds from The Art of Seed)… Actually there are a few peppers in this picture too!

Baby Mortgage Lifters!

Nasturtiums are doing great too…

Nasturtiums to put around my potted tomato plants…

Coming Soon!

Soon the roses will be blooming and Iโ€™ll be planting tomatoes. Around here we take roses and tomatoes seriously!

From the look of the Harrison Yellowย  buds, that rose may bloom in the next few days … and that will be 6 weeks early! ๐Ÿ™‚

Frost or no frost, I still love an early spring!

Have you been having frosty mornings in your neck of the woods?
