This is the scene I woke up to yesterday:
And the plants were happy in their little coverings. They actually got an extra layer since it was supposed to get down into the low 20's this morning.
I'm not sure how cold it actually got, but everything seems to have survived just fine.
Even the uncovered stuff did OK... like the oregano and catnip that I recently transplanted.
Even the lilacs seem to have made it through with flying colors.
So the sun is shining, the melt is on, and all is right with the world!
