She was correct. The temperature crept down as the wind picked up.
Your weather may have been worse.
Yesterday between showers I planted onion sets between cabbages and in a section of my herb wheel that held marigolds in the summer --covered with straw at right. Herbs look bleak after two frosts; lemon grass died back to roots.
Vidalia-type onions went between Red Cabbages. That's
an onion at upper center; the green at left is chickweed.
A green edging really improves a bed in winter, I think. The grass-like foliage is Lycoris radiata in its winter form. The vine-like plant is Trachelospermum jasminoides. The shrub is a Camellia.
I looked for flowers. There is usually something blooming in November. The best I could find was a droopy orange rose and Shrimp Plant in the upper garden.
White Camellia sasanqua blooms turned brown after the frost. More buds are starting to open now with some browning noted on many. I hope we'll have Camellia japonicas open before Christmas.
Next week will be different. That's how winter here works. I still haven't planted all the seeds that should be in the ground in November.
Have a marvelous Thanksgiving. I look forward to whipped Rutabaga.
