Re: interesting gardening after the storm....

Most plants are tougher than we give them credit for. Only my hisbiscus
coccineas and four o'clocks showed any frostbite from our light freeze
the other night. The peppers are all fine much to my pleasant surprise.

Subject: [CHAT] interesting gardening after the storm....

Although I didn't post the pictures of the backyard after our freak snow
storm, some things that I was thought was interesting.

My grasses where all laying down with the weight of the snow and ice.  All
plants were covered with this snow.

Today, as the rains, wind came and snow melted, the grasses stood back up!
Never would I have thought they would since they were already browned and
dormant for the season.

My petunias in the turned whiskey barrel are still alive!... I would have
thought that storm did them in! Also noticed a few other things that were
green, but most of them (like the honeysuckle) do that most of the winter.
