Yes, the inevitable has happened, 'Jack Frost' visited my garden last night. This morning I woke to what looked like a sugar coated landscape.
Agapanthus and daylilies, a little frosted.
Soon after, the lovely sunshine began to chase the frost away.
Under the protection of the oaks, the shade garden was unharmed. The bird baths under the trees did have a thin layer of ice...
All is well, winter just ran behind schedule a little this season. My Hostas will appreciate some cold weather, and the frost will make spring cleanup easier. Here are a few photos I took yesterday...
First bloom on 'Lady Clare', Camellia Japonica.
Ground Orchids popping up in the shade beds.
My tiniest 'Louis Phillippe' rose is blooming.
If you'll remember, this cutting was started in July. I had planned to keep them potted until spring, but they rooted so quickly that I planted them in December.
This is a cutting from a pink OGR taken at the same time. All the cuttings survived, so you'll see more of them in spring.
'Mother' of the pink cutting.
I hope that your garden is bringing you joy. If your weather is inclement, wishes for happy spring planning.
