Day 128 – What Florida Frost Does

Day 128 – What Florida Frost Does

Poinsettias on our patio – before Florida Frost

The picture to the side was taken a couple of days ago, before “Florida Frost” (January 20-22, 2009) hit the Central Florida area.

Not knowing better (even though I should have) I did not cover up those beautiful poinsettias that were planted on our patio right after the holidays. They had been doing really well, even in the rather fresh evening temperatures of the past weeks.

Unfortunately I underestimated the power of “Florida Frost”…

Below you see the result of my mistake… “Florida Frost” killed my poinsettias 🙁 I am deeply sorry and promise to take better care of my plants next time. Hopefully we won’t see temperatures that low anytime soon.

I am ready for the warmer Spring like temperatures that Florida usually spoils us with this time of the year 🙂
