How Much?

Not an issue of if it will snow here but how much! I really hope it makes it all the way to San Antonio on Friday since I have to work. I would hate to miss it as it so very rarely happens here.

Cut all the roses off the 'La Biche'* (the doe in French). The flowers will be ruined by the extreme cold. I gave Sheri (our neighbor) some for her home as I had quite the bouquet.

(* for you rosarians - read more about the correct name of this rose here. Was called 'La Biche', then 'Sombreuil' then may have been confused with 'Colonial White', now she is called 'Mlle. de Sombreuil'..... She will be 'La Biche' to me. Besides that, mine does not look like their 'Mlle. de Sombreuil' photo.)

Some of my salvia collection that likes to bloom in the fall/winter - just about the time the frost will take the plant down to the ground. Another one....

I have forgotten both of the salvias' names, I need to do a little research.

My sweetie said this is the best they have ever looked. At least I have photos to compare in years to come.

I'll pray for you that it moves North or South!

San Antonio is south of New Braunfels. The weather guys all have an opinion. All different but all say snow somewhere in Central Texas.

It looks like TX is in for snow all over. Hope your gardens aren't too hurt by it.

Love your roses. Do they have a wonderful scent?

Your salvias look luscious too.

Flower Lady - Most of the garden is pretty root hardy. Just miss the blooms when they are gone.

Yes, the roses do have a great scent (whatever her name is).

Thanks for stopping by.

The salvias are stunning. Sometime you will have to video document your garden at various glorious times of the year.

You always post the most beautiful plant pictures, Tufagirl! Love those salvias too!

It sure feels cold here, and I'm way south of you. So I can imagine how cold it feels there.
