My Poor Garden


This past month, we’ve experienced the coldest weather I’ve ever lived through. This isn’t saying much, as I grew up in the tropics, but it was still co-old for this area. We had snow three (3!) different days! And a week of sub-freezing temperatures. I went into hibernation mode, and didn’t leave the house that whole time, I think.

And… my poor potted plants. They are totally not used to that kind of weather. We don’t have any space inside to bring them in, so I bundled them up in blankets and towels up close to the house, but they look like this now:

Some of them are going to make it, I think, but some of them may have seen their last sunlight.

I don’t really know how to tell if they’re dead or not, except to wait and see what happens as it warms up and they get more water and sun. Does anyone know?


About Rachel

Most importantly, I am saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is more than enough to satisfy my heart. In His abundant goodness, I am also delighted to be a wife and mama. I work at home and enjoy spending most of my time caring for my husband, 2 sons and new daughter. I also try to squeeze in some creativity, coffee, chocolate, and good books.
