We are going to have some nasty, cold weather blow in very soon. Like, in about 15 minutes, the temperature is going to drop from a balmy 63 degrees to about 45 degrees real quick, and we expect a freeze tonight. Hopefully, this will be the last freeze of the year.
So, in advance of all that, I was out trying to take care of some of my new tender foliage that I am so proud of, and I found this.
Tucked in among many weedy things is this little clump of Dianthus. They have been here for at least 3 years, and they just flourish. I will tend to this area this weekend, after the weather clears.
It is here. The cold, the wind, the rain. Yuk.
But I do have this patch of dianthus. It doesn't take much for me.
