Are you still without power from the windstorm? I am wondering how your dahlias are doing without electic heat? Hope they have not frozen! Notice I am more worried about your dahlias then you? That is the right priority isn't it?
We had a lot of trees uprooted from their waterlogged soil, as well as madronas shattered through the woods, but the gardens seem fine (except for a "Summer Wine" rose that covered an arbor and my front porch). Arbor needs to go to the copper arbor hospital . Summer WIne is in the great plant hospital and will have a long recovery period.....looks like a victim of inebraited driving winds to me!
