Weather Report Above the Frost Line 11-5-09





I checked the predicted low for tonight, and a tear slid down my cheek. 29 degrees they say.

It could be the last night for my flowers, here above the frost line.

So far all fall I woke every morning to bright colored leaves and flowers blooming. I've had many rose bushes, some nashturtiums, a few butterfly bushes, cleome, chrysanthesums and my star for Ocober and November - the Confederate Rose.

Sometimes the freeze stays away until after Thanksgiving. I dread this night - if it is the night of the hard freeze.

Nancy,
I sure hope you flowers will last until after Thanksgiving. You have such lovely flowers there above the Frost Line.

Hi Brenda Kay, Flowers are still standing today on
November 7th. It's a beautiful day.

I hope your flowers keep you company for awhile, yet. Have a cheerful day!

Thanks, Joan, for the good wishes.

Yes, flowers are still blooming here above the frost line on November 8, 2009, and there is no freeze
predicted in the next few nights.

These beautiful fall days and the last of the flowers do cheer me greatly. "Living Above the Frost Line" means we get a little extended growing time. That is the real blessing I feel. I need a little more growing time. Thanks.
