The expected freeze happened on Wednesday night, just enough frost to blacken things like Brugmansias, Daturas and Periwinkles in open ground. I pulled many things like Melampodium in anticipation so I wouldn't have to see dead plants..
Hearty Camellia sasanqua is not affected that much, still heavy with white blossoms. Freezing temperatures were for a short time and only one night, so we bravely soldier on.
I made no photos. A lone Kniphofia blossom is still bright orange, Duranta's purple blossoms are unhurt but nothing exciting enough to display.
I clipped some outer Black Kale leaves after the frost. Sliced and sauteed and added to potato soup they were special.
I am not linking to Bloom Day this month.The greenhouse has blooming white wax begonias and Schlumbergera buds. Two of three Amaryllis bulbs bloomed. They were not what I ordered.
Maybe next month.
