It looks so pretty lightly frosted but I know how you feel. A few of our annuals are showing a bit of frost damage but only in certain parts of our garden. The rest of the week is warm sunny temps in the high 70’s to low 80’s with night temps of 46 to 50F.

Was it forecast Tina or were you caught out....

It was forecasted Elaine but we were right on the cusp of a freeze, not a total 3 degrees below freezing, I had everything I could possibly cover, covered but that only helps with a light frost @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

That's a lovely photo! We got close to freezing the last two nights but so far we've escaped it. Cool tonight but not close to freezing (about 41F) but the next two weeks look warm and sunny. Hope the frost bypasses you too😊

It's the mature females that are supposed to be all black Katy and other carpenters have more of a tan/ yellow fuzz @gjones
