Re: Frost

We had frost last night and the birdbath had a thin coating of ice, but I had expected colder temperatures. Planted some perennials yesterday I'd bought "on sale" , but most were native to this part of the continent, so I am not really worried about them. For me, this is ideal gardening weather -- I can work outside in complete comfort (as opposed to pulling weeds in 90+ degree temperatures) of course, the weeds that multiplied during our "prairie summer" weather are probably still several steps ahead of me! Am still hoping to get a few more shrubs in the ground before the "real cold" sets in. Am trying to work on some needlework ornaments for our local chapter of EGA's contribution of a decorated tree for our local charity auction, but I've been outside more than in!

tonight...brr!! It was already down to 34 when I drove to work last
night about 10:30 p.m.: kept the heater in the van going at full blast.
Also, I heard that upper Michigan could be getting a little snow
tonight...I'll have to check that out on the web later...looks my
planting plans have come to an abrupt end...we usually don't get this
cold for about another month or so...guess I'll just get finished with
the fall clean-up I started last weekend and be done with it.
Besides...I've got a quilt top that I've been neglecting in favor of
being outdoors so I'll get going on it again...all hand applique work
which I love!!
