I Asked For It.....Brrr!

This morning it was 49 as a cold front came through last night. Not much precip but the plants are very happy to be out of the hot sun for once, and SO am I! It feels good to have some nice cool air coming in the windows and gives me an excuse not to garden, since I have many other things I need to accomplish. Tonight it is supposed to be near 40. In 1941 it actually got down to 28 this week! Anyway, here's some:

Happy, happy lettuce

Happy basil

Really happy petunias (they LOVE the cool evenings


And...happy entry plants, especially morning glories that are tired of wilting in the sun.
In a couple of days it will warm up again and then maybe we'll have the start of our Indian Summer. It's great to have a break like this.

That's too cold. I am glad your plants like it, I am not ready for it to be cold like that. NOT Ready!

The only thing that's missing is a pic of a happy, happy Bev! ;-)

BTW what a lovely thermometer!

Bev said...

Carol, I'm not ready yet either. Last year started WAY TOO early for me and I hope it doesn't happen again this year.

No way Yolanda!! Maybe a picture of my cat instead?

Bev, we are having a cold front move through too. I'm ready for fall, but I hate winter and cold weather. I hope we have a nice long fall.

Bev said...

Robin, I love fall too and hope we have a looong one!

Bev, I hate moving the tender plants in and out this time of year when we get those plunging overnight temps. Guess I should bite the bullet and decide what goes and what stays. Oh, I need a greenhouse!

I just love when the crisp weather arrives. It's energizing! Everything looks beautiful in your garden.

I don't know about 40º, but a night of 55º with windows open sounds like a dream right now!

But Bev, don't the basil plants resent being that cool?
