(no subject)

Damned winter weather after a month of unseasonably warm weather.

To cover, or not to cover, that is the question.

Also to consider, it's 11:37 pm, we just got home from the gym, and it's lightly hailing out there.

I did stop at Freddies and picked up a couple rolls of lightweight landscaping fabric, which will make excellent floating row covers, but need to decide if I trust the weatherman that it's going to stay above freezing tonight--might be easier to cover things not in the dead of night.

I think I'm going to go wrap the passion flowers, since they've already started new growth, and drape the peonies...everything else is on it's own until tomorrow.

(one of those time where I hope for snow, rather than sleet...snow actually insulates the plants, where plain old ice is worse for them).
