Ugh. It’s dropping down to 28 again tonight. Make sure your plants are well watered asap today. Time to take back inside any tender plants that are outside. Cover the tender plants that stay outside with frostcloth, burlap, sheets, anything you have, as soon as you can today to help trap heat in. Be sure to anchor the covering to the ground. You can use plastic as covering if you have to, but be sure to take it off asap tomorrow because it transfers a lot of heat once the temps start rising.
The pic is of a container of pansies in my garden during last year’s snow event. Thankfully it’s not supposed to snow tonight.
But not sure which ones they are? Here’s an article with good info on which types of hummers visit where in Texas.
I bought Flame Acanthus and Black and Blue Salvia for my hummer visitors. They’re still sitting in the black nursery pots … I’ll do a post on them as soon as I figure out where they’re going in the garden. Now I’m just waiting on my hummer from the other day to come back for a visit and some nectar sipping!
I had the most wonderful surprise happen this morning! I was sitting on the couch putting together my plan for opening Bella Jardins and creating a landscape design for my yard when this beautiful little hummingbird flew right up to the window and hovered there for a moment. I have no nectar plants in the garden yet, so there’s no reason she should be around here. But I believe she was telling me to hurry up and get her some nectar plants. What an amazing way to start my day.
