Frosts that Kill

It got mighty cold last night. Minus 7 degrees celsius to be exact. Brrr...that's cold. When the tempature drops down that low I start to worry about some of my plants. My euphorbia'Tasmania Tiger' isn't looking so happy. I hope I mulched my gunnera deep enough too. I would be sad if I lost my 'Big Guy'. On the other hand though, besides the gunnera I really don't want plants that aren't going to be tough. I just don't have the time or energy to pamper plants. It would be nice to have a greenhouse though. I made a temporary one under the treehouse. Hopefully the plants in containers will survive the winter in there. Posted by Picasa

Despite the killing frost, it is stunning when it sets upon the plants--your photos show that. Oh, that hydrangea photo--I envy that one, precious view of the hydrangea, love it. So will you be able to winter plants over outside? I don't know what zone you are? I have one windowbox set near the house, over the cellar window well & was surprised the plants were still going strong--must be the way they are near the house. Thanks for sharing your frost!
