Well we had a surprise this morning... the Norfolk TV station said we would be around 40, no frost... further inland (on the other side of the Chesapeake Bay) there probably would be frost. So, I did not worry about it... not that I really had to worry anyway... the house plants are all in the house or in the little green house and the cats have been sleeping in their warm box by the steps... So I was surprised when the sun came up to see a white barn roof and the top of the Buddha's stump was white. It was 35 degrees! So, today, I disconnected the back hose - the front hoses have been put away for a week or two - and loaded my big tomato plant in the wagon and brought it up onto the carport. Maybe I will get to the geraniums tomorrow.

A little hoar frost galvanized you into action. We had two inches of snow. I would rather just pull the comforter up around my neck.

Thanks for visiting by blog via Cliff! I picked all of my garden stuff last week when they were talking frost warning. I still have baskets of stuff sitting in the kitchen. I haven't had time to do anything with it yet! Love your flower pictures. My geraniums are still outside and alive!
