A colder night may well change things Verdun We expect our first real frost tonight.
I've been doing a count for many years, it's very variable, anything from 6 (only the larger shrubs showed above the snow), to 40 something. It will be interesting to see the results. I have many flowers out that have never before flowered on NYD, but a quick glance suggests fewer left-overs from summer.
For us it's not a competition to see how many we can get, it's a year by year comparison on the same date every year. It makes an interesting study.
