We’ve had an extremely mild winter this year and only protected the plants in the shed a few nights in December. Usually all the annuals are dead by now and the leaves have fallen off of the hydrangeas, but everything is still blooming. The white azaleas started flowering in December and the pink ones just burst into color this week–both colors are about six weeks early. But all the blooms might soon be over. Freeze warnings! So Terry and I tucked all the pots back into the shed but didn’t cover the outside plants. Survival of the fittest!
