For the past two mornings, I have pulled out of the garage at 6:30 a.m. and seen this on DH's truck:
Today, I stopped, got out of the car, and ran back inside to get my camera. I had to use a flash because it was dark outside, but I think you can still see the icy crystals. All the rooftops were also white.
I thought for sure my tender dahlias, cannas, and sweet potato vines would be toast. A few were. But my big garage urns are just 10 feet from the truck and they looked fine when I got home from work and took this picture just one hour ago. This sweet potato vine looks great!
I did lose a few dahlias. These Rembrandts on the deck look pretty sad.
These sweet potato vines on the arbor also look bad.
Out in the garden, these blue salvia are just coming into their prime time.
We are predicted to be in the high 60's tomorrow. I am planning to cut down a lot of stuff this weekend.
I don't want to wait and end up not getting it done, like I did last year.
I bet a lot of you will also be out cleaning up for fall.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
