In an attempt to prevent the loss of the peach and plum buds which were just starting to swell, I inadvertently created a couple of ridiculous ghosts in the backyard yesterday.
In what can only be described as a random act of horticultural cruelty it went down to 9 degrees FOR ONE NIGHT. It’s apparently part of the “Siberian polar vortex.”
It’s too soon to tell if the buds are ok. I’m still hoping for some peach blossoms. Those deep pink, crepey blooms are so pretty. And of course peaches are even better.
Freezing rain expected tonight, but nothing below the 20’s temp-wise.
Siberia: You can have your weather back.
