Combating the Cold.

i've managed to preserve my three remaining pentas by covering them with cardboard boxes the last few nights.

we were supposed to have overnight temperatures in the low 20s earlier this week (i think it actually only got as cold as upper 20s), so i went ahead and cut the flower scape from the crinum. it's now in the kitchen windowsill and continues to progress -- it may go ahead and bloom after all. or maybe not; it's still several days from opening.

i also put extra mulch in the raised veggie/herb bed and everything there still looks good. even the baby peas.

four of the five erlicheer narcissus have flower buds (one of them has two buds).
