This time of year we here in Michigan are always threatened by an early frost. Just when late blooming dahlias are at their best the weather turns cool and those dastardly weather people start making noises about frost. Wednesday it was in the 90′s (32.2 C) here. Last night we were warned it could go as low as 38 (3.33C) in the city, maybe colder out here in the country. So after supper Katie and I went out and cut a few of the beautiful blooms, bringing them in to save them from the cold.
Katie had to go out this morning at 5:30 and I could see there was frost on the roof of the car parked in the driveway but I haven’t been out now that it’s daylight to see if the frost killed any plants. We covered the tomatoes with sheets so they should be fine. Meanwhile I have these lovely flowers inside to enjoy. And Katie and I saw a shooting star when we were wandering in the cold earlier.
Flowers and shooting stars. Not a bad way to start the weekend.
