The tree is all lit on the porch, but look what lurks in the garden!!
This is the "after" photo of what was once a beautiful plant ( see below) until it hit below freezing last night and stayed that way for several hours!
Remember my post of the tomato cage that you could barely see because of the big green and healthy tomato plant? Well, here is the poor thing now! I have no idea if the tomatoes will now fall off or will they rot or will they ripen? Only time will tell. By the way, it is now sunny and warm and tonight won't be that cold, so havoc can really occur in only a night!
What in the world? Is it some monster left over from Halloween? No! It is the banana tree! I'm almost scared of it, poor thing. It once had lovely deep green fronds standing so tall and proud.
Well, here is the Good! I have still got pea plants and ONE pea!! If all the blooms fell off and I only have this One pea, then perhaps I should have it gilded and display it on the sideboard!
I thought I would take heart and made some of my mother's famous peanut butter roll candy today since it is non-humid. However, it turned out a total mess as well. Some days one should just give up and read a book!
Hope your day went well, Egretta
