The Last Last Last Late Frost

Twice we’ve had what I thought was the last late frost of the winter. Well, we’re having another one tonight. Temperature is just above freezing, the sky is clear, the wind is light and there are hours to go before sunrise. Temperature is falling 2°C each hour…

I went out and hosed down all my potted plants that are fragile, put 20L pails over some new Amelanchier alnifolia seedlings that have flower buds, and threw a blanket over some chokecherries. I brought in all the pots on the veranda. Now, I’m going to bed. I may hose things down again in a few hours… Sigh…
