I woke up this morning to frost. The pansies slumped over with crystalized frost covering most of their blooms. Even though it is still quite cold they seem to be bouncing back in the sunlight. Maybe tonight I should move the pots to the garage to keep them for getting hit with frost again. Some leaves that were opening up on the hydrangeas look to have been bitten by the frost. Tomorrow is supposed to be a much warmer day, but that’s it. Just that one day and then several days of cold and rain. My daughter’s seventh birthday party is on the weekend and it’s supposed to be chilly with pop up showers. Lovely. April is shaping up to be much colder than March, and all I want to do is plant the dahlia tubers that are getting crazy out of control. After experiencing frost last night I realize that, yes, it really is too early to get out in the garden and plant.
Geraniums have always reminded me of hibiscus flowers.
I started a few geraniums last month and they are beginning to bloom. I also have two white geraniums, but only one flower has opened on one plant. The other buds on that stem died before getting a chance to open. The other stem seems to have perfect little buds that will open soon.
