We have a frost advisory for tonight. Frost in late April is not unusual here, but to have my gardens as far advanced as they are is very unusual. When I did a "walk around" tonight, I noticed that my Cuthbert Grant rose is full of buds! Unheard of in Wisconsin in April! Last year my roses did not have their first flush until the 3rd week of June.
So, needless to say, I carried the 11 rose bushes I bought this weekend, plus numerous other plants into the garage for the night. Wish I could do that with the peonies I just transplanted a few weeks ago. They have come up so nicely and many have buds too.
Keeping my fingers crossed that this time the weatherman is wrong!
