rebloom & frost
Grenadine Pacesetter opened yesterday and has 3 blooms open today. It is a
really pretty red plicata and has nine properly spaced buds. I just hope that the
frost holds off long enough for them all to open. Thrice Blessed opened today.
Coral Charmer, Firestorm, Dime Spot, Palo Pinto and Witch of Endor are all still
blooming as well.
It was down to 33 degrees F Thursday night. Last night was warmer and
tonight is supposed to be a little warmer. There is another cold blast coming in
the first of the week. With our average first frost date 2 weeks away I am
beginning to worry.
