Frost in the forecast

The low temp tonight is suppose to be 27!! I am worried about a few things in the yard getting frost damage. My beautiful little crab apple tree is getting ready to explode with blooms. I hope it gets the chance to.
And Chuck and Delores, if you are reading this, this photo is for you. I am so proud of these Day Lilies. These are the Day Lilies that you gave me two years ago. It was one huge clump and I divided it into about 15 small ones and planted them along my side yard. They are coming up so big and healthy this year. Last year they did pretty good but got frost damage about this far along and took a long time to recover. I don't want the same thing to happen again this year so I'm going out and covering them up with blankets tonight. I'm hoping that tonight is the last night we have to worry about frost.

Brrrrr...Cover those baby lilies up!
Good luck, you guys.
We're supposed to go down to 38 here. Not quite frost, but still cold!

They say 29 tonight. We just put a few potted things in the garage and tossed a blanket over the PJM rhododendren. I hope the plants all get through it unscathed - everything looks so good out there!
