A Late Spring Frost

 Last night I tucked my gardens in before I went to bed.  It went down to 33 degrees and I was not taking any chances.  I've planted 30 tomato plants and it just was not worth the risk.

 First thing this morning, I headed down to see how the lower garden fared. The Mock Oranges opened a bit overnight.

 Time to clean and decorate the outdoor dining room. I put one of my garden totems on the table.  Click for a closer look.

 I covered the lower garden with newspaper.  I am leaving it like this until tomorrow.  There is another chance of a frost tonight.

 More roses opened too.

 The 'New Dawns' on the shed will bloom pink and it is always beautiful how they look mixed in with the reds.

 Everything came through last night in good shape.

I'll check it again tomorrow and maybe the Mock Oranges will be wide open by then.
