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 won’t get to bloom. 🙁 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.
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® has the most petite flowers of all of the Drift® Roses. It is perfect for use in front of border plantings. Red Drift® makes a beautiful statement when it drapes naturally over a rock wall or edge. Mature height is less than 1½’ with a wider spread. Great flower power and disease resistance.
Nasturtiums are doing great too…
Soon the roses will be blooming and I’ll be planting tomatoes. Around here we take roses and tomatoes seriously!
From the look of the Harrison Yellow buds, that rose may bloom in the next few days … and that will be 6 weeks early! 🙂
Frost or no frost, I still love an early spring!
Have you been having frosty mornings in your neck of the woods?
