FROST, What a Killjoy

Look what the frost did to my hosta. I was so disappointed to see how it was damaged. Hopefully I can cut off the injured leaves and it will come back. 

And then there is this pure wisteria never made it to flower.

Here is another sad little fellow. I was looking so forward to seeing these flowers.

But then as I was inspecting the plant closer I found a lone survivor. That made my day.


  1. Hi Laurie, doesn't that just kill ya when you lose a plant or part of one? Like one of the family or your own limb. LOL Is that Lamb's Ears I see behind the hosta? It looks great. I think I finally have one happy Lamb's Ears that I must have put in the right place.
    We had one really cold week this last winter and I guess that's what made me lose a bunch. I'm just sick over all of the new ones I had bought last summer that didn't make it! In fact I'm thinking about making a plant cemetery and put their little tags in the ground all together I lost so many. ;-(
    Thanks so much for stopping by, I really love the company!

  2. Hi RainGardener, Yes it is Lamb's Ear. It grows really really well around here. It is always self seeding all over the place. In fact I never planted that one behind the hosta. What zone are you gardening in? I'm in 5b. I like the plant cemetery idea. It would make a great picture for you blog. :)

  3. I love how the hope returned when you found a surviving wisteria bloom! It's good to be a gardener!

  4. Sorry the frost did damage there. I hope the wisteria blooms lasts so you can enjoy it for awhile.

  5. I can't believe you still have frost up there! Well, at least it answers my question of whether or not temperate plants get caught off guard too or not...
    Here in Florida wisteria actually gets to be a weed and the asian species is an exotic invasive! (but pretty nonetheless.)
    BTW I changed my site design so be sure to tell me what you think!
