How could I forget about the plants!

I tell you, I think my CRS is getting worst by the day!  I was well aware there was a cold front on the way, moved a lot of things on the northern part of the house to the back bathroom/shed/catch all room but forgot all about the plants!

Early this morning I heard the rain and wind and woke up in a panic remembering I had not brought them in. My mother's avocado tree came to mind as well as my poor hanging baskets. Where is my jacket?  Oh yeah...it is still caked in mud and sitting in dad's old car waiting patiently for me to take her to the laundromat :-(

Grabbed a towel and draped it around me...went to bring in the plants and along with them...more mosquitoes!!!  Turned on the heater and went back to bed.

I love the first freeze...though it was not a real freeze as it only got to 39.  That is close enough to freezing for this early in the season...after all, it is still Autumn.

This afternoon I was tired...I laid down for a nap but had no idea it would be a three and a half hour one. When I woke up the clock read 7:57 and for a minute there...I thought I had slept through the night!

Good night, bundle up and may you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  3. We just threw some sheets over the plants on the screened in back porch. It only got down to 42 here, but with the dampness, it felt cold!!
