December’s Chill

The flowers were not killed the other day as I expected. Judging from the outside temperature as I write (in the wee hours of the morning again) they will probably succumb tonight to winter's chill. If not, I will have salvia, impatiens and begonias blooming outside on December 1st.

In two weeks I will be starting my begonia seed for next summer. In the months after I'll be busy in the plant room getting other seedlings underway. Winter is not necessarily a time for rest at Shady Hollow. At least not under my grow lights!

  1. It is very cold here. We awoke to frost this morning. Doug took the dogs out at 5:30 am and slid on the frost/ice and fell down the back steps. THANK GOD he was not injured...I know he is going to have some horrible bruises. I heard the thump and went running...I didn't know who or what fell, but I knew something was going on in the quiet of the morning.
    Blessings, andrea
