RE: Intro


Although we got down to 34 degrees F overnight, it didn't freeze and there
was enough wind to prevent frost.  I'm thankful to say the least.  My new
dogwood and Japanese maple will go in their permanent spots sometime today.
I over wintered them in established beds in their pots.  Now that the two
dead trees in the elm cluster have been removed, the very young trees will
be planted between the two still healthy established elms.  They will look
like "Mutt and Jeff" for a little while, but now that the center two elms
are not competing for space with the two outer elms, I expect the remaining
elms to branch out and fill in the "gap" overhead to give the two under
story trees some additional shade and protection.  They won't get big enough
to get whacked by the power company.  

Now I just have to find the perfect permanent spot for my magnolia and my
dawn redwood....

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

I am worried about my plants too- was thinking of dragging them all in the
garage....

But I got to find out how well this greenhouse of sorts works, so they have
to brave the cold tonight in there. Still considering putting a heater in
there!
