Strong Snapdragons

We have thawed out from the big winter storm that crossed the plains Thanksgiving Day through the weekend.  We got glazed by ice, but not coated in it here to do any damage.  The moisture was appreciated, but the slick roads impacted our travel plans for Thanksgiving.  We had a quiet holiday at home together instead of with our extended families who live where there was thicker ice  They lost power for a while.

Today was the first chance I've had to look at the garden.  While still alive, the petunias and grasses in the containers on our patio are looking pretty weak .  I tossed most of them into the compost hole and am letting the clay pots dry well before storing them.

The neatest find on the patio today was the snapdragons.  They are still going strong.  Amazing to have them doing so well in December.

Hoping to get new tour photos taken soon.  


  1. So sorry you missed your day with family-but I'm sure you two made the best of it. The snaps are lovely--they must be VERY hardy to have gone through temps like that and still look so healthy and vibrant.
    Have a wonderful weekend

  2. Pretty little snapdragons, giving you some color in December.

    Sorry you missed being with your family for the holiday, but glad you are safe and had a nice day just the two of you.

    Happy Holidays ~ FlowerLady

  3. It's amazing how some plants can withstand the cold. I have sweet peas happily growing up from the snow.

    1. I'm sorry you were unable to travel for Thanksgiving but I know you two had a nice day. I love snapdragons...pretty color. Wishing you both a nice upcoming weekend.

  4. Like those snapdragons. They stand out well against the sunlight.
