Unpredictable March nights


     My poor magnolia tree had some frost damage to its almost open buds.  I think some over the pond got hit the worst.  We might have some bloomage but nothing near what it would’ve been had the temperature stayed above freezing.  The last two years the tree escaped the frost so I guess it was about due to happen again.

     DH was surprised that it was cold enough to need a jacket when he went over to the hospital to see his mother in the morning.  I told him to be ready for a repeat of it today since as I write this at 2 a.m. the temperature has already dropped to 33 degrees.

     However, by Thursday it is supposed to be in the seventies again.  I’m glad because I do have some new flowers that need planting.  I also need to bring my black elephant ears up from the basement to get them acclimated and ready to plant too.  They will stay on the back porch until mid April.

     I just took the pups for their last out of the night and it is chilly.  I needed my jacket.

  1. Awwww, I’m sorry they suffered frost damage. I really wanted to get to see them. The pics of them are beautiful, but never quite as stunning as in person.

    If it doesn’t keep getting so cold at night we might have some blossoms but no where near what we’ve had the last two springs.
