Thanks Lynn. I hope they are still alive after surprise frost last night. I hope the stone kept frost away.

Jo Ann, is that an aloe, or an agave? If agave it should be fine. Even the echeveria should be okay. They are both such beautiful plants.

Lynn, You dont know what good news that is.
Agave is right. Both plants look good this AM. I was afraid of the night temps and light frost we had.

Both my grandson and I would have been crushed if anything happened to his gift.

Last nights low was really 41* but Sat, Sun, Mon are supposed to be 37,38,39.
I still keep my eye on night temps because we had a hard frost last May 23.
The rule here is no annual planting til Memorial Day weekend.
