It is supposed to dip to 31 fahrenheit early early tomorrow morning. I will be tucking in my confused dahlias and hydrangea, and the baby lettuce and bringing the potted stuff indoors. Everything else should be fine I hope. We actually have not had a clear freeze since early November. Crazy.


Ahhh... I’ve got some very early flowers showing too. It’s been exceptionally mild for us so far

I just noticed some Irises blooming here in Dallas yesterday

Mine are blooming too. The plants don’t know if it’s spring or winter!!!


My roses are leafed out, winter flowers are popping, and my blue star bulbs are up about 4", typical for March/April!ll
