We had a Nor'easter last night (Saturday). We were suppose to get between 6"-12" (15-30cm) of snow but, God was gracious, and we only got about 3 inches. Lost our power between 5:30 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. There was no church this morning because they lost their power, too! In fact, there are 123 schools in Massachusetts that don't have school tomorrow (probably due to power outages) - mine is not one of them, :( .
I was so surprised to see that some of my flowers still weathered the storm! I went outside after lunch and here's what I found:
I can't believe how hardy these petunias are! They were covered with snow this morning, and bounced right back! (Well, sort of. They're a bit droopy, but the petals are fine.)
Geranium 'Mr. Wren' still going strong, too! Love the shadows in this pic.
And this Lantana, too! It fared much better than the Marigold did.
Fairy World is none the worse for wear, either. I think Jade will be happy about that!
Yesterday morning, I was smart enough to get some cuttings before the weather changed. I'm glad I did! As I was walking through the kitchen this evening, I caught a waft of those wee little roses smelling up the room - it was so pleasant!
Besides the rose buds, I cut Cosmos, Nicotiana, Calicarpa, Mums, the last blue Scabiosa, Marigolds, Pineapple Sage, and the light pink Chrysanthemum 'Sheffield Pink'.
