Saturday I removed the last three big containers from the garage sides and the front porch. They still looked good, but I wanted to have it all done before the snow flies. I could not bring myself to yank this big cordayline out. A couple of you told me it would survive down to 10 degrees, so I thought perhaps I could overwinter it in the garage beside this window where it will get a bit of light.
The garage never gets below 30 degrees. Do you think it will live through the winter? It's worth a try as I would sure love to be able to start this container with it as the centerpiece next spring.
Here is a sneak peek of the hydrangea Christmas tree :
I thought the color worked, so I just cut them off and laid them over the branches. I cut up some light pink beads and did the same. Then I quit for the night. I thought this little tree would be easy peasy, but with all the changes I have already made, it is beginning to take more time than I want to give it. Most of the time involves lugging up boxes from the basement and then hauling them back down. Hate that part!!
