Re: I thought

Frost possible here tonight, but I think we'll miss it tonight.
Trees are turning - dogwoods have been turning for a month, 
but others are bright now.  I've found  new homes for most of
my large potted plants - we just can't handle them any longer.
I had a camellia that I grew from seed my father sent me before
he died in 1980.  He had a large collection of camellias in Alabama.
He said this might be something special - I never got to discuss it
with him, but it seems to have a drooping habit - branches curve
down and the plant is compact.  Anyway, I gave it to a friend who
has a conservatory.  I gave my large jade plant that was given to
me by a late District Director in 1988 when she moved to Calif. to
the mansion house at Lasdon Park & Arboretum.  They have taken
a couple of my large plants before.  Since that is the office of the
FGCNYS District, it seemed appropriate to give it to them.  I have
offered a large Sprengerei (sp.?) that I grew from seed a number of
years ago to a neighbor.  She hasn't picked it up yet, but that's more
nearly hardy to a light frost than other things.  I hate to see my 
container plantings go, but that's what happens this time of year.
At least I found good homes for some of them.

Had our first frost last night and another expected tonight.  Sigh, winter 
coming!  The trees just started to turn in the last 48 hours.  Crazy 

Planned on putting away all the summer things but due to the rain all week, 
is just too wet.  Maybe tomorrow.  So instead I slept all day, no 
DH has a bad cold so I am hoping I am not coming down with it.

my email was broken, it's been so quiet. But it's not I guess. Supposed to 
down to 28 tonight. Brrr. Had to put the lemon and lime in their little
greenhouse and crank up the humidifier--we use the humidifier to heat the
greenhouse. It seems to work... at least it did last year through 
temps and light snow storms. Trees, maples anyway, are starting turn;
dogwood's been red for a month or so--first breezy day and it'll likely be a
hatrack. Interesting thing about the maples: one across the circle died not
too long after it leafed out in spring; now the neighbors have one that 
like tapiola.
