If You Can't Fix It...

|Can you see your daylilies? For some reason I can't see a single one of the beauties I planted on the hill above the stream.... sure glad I brought some inside to jog my memory... dang, I better go weed... LOL
Seriously though, I am curious to see how these do.... several are non-hardy EVs I bought by mistake... (if they bloom i can cross with some frozen hardy pollen) and others are from seed crosses I bought off LA without making sure there was at least some hardy genetics in the cross... and several are from horribly pitiful plants from LA that I did not think would survive the winter because they arrived mid-late in the season in horrible condition.... a couple LA Sellers are getting coal for xmass.. I already emailed Santa. haha!

|I can see mine, as brown dead heaps of foliage (ev, sev and dec alike) on frozen ground. No snow cover, current temperature at 10.30 am is 16F (-9C). Windchill is 5F (-15C) so although I can see the daylilies and the ground, I ain't going out there weeding|

|Just went in the backyard for the first time in weeks. Surprised to see so many daylilies still green. No snow yet but have had hard freezes. The Evs look the best but come Spring they'll be the worst.
Threw some leaves over some beds & tipped over pots. Nothing else to really do for them until Spring.

|I have a very slight amount of snow cover on some areas, maybe an inch, wheras other areas of the garden are bare. I am in the same zone as Sooby, but because of out position, the snow doesn't melt of as quickly.
No weeding here, either

|Sorry to be the one to tell you this, Jeff, but you didn't plant daylilies on that hill...those are briers!!!
Seriously, that is a beautiful snow scene.
What do you mean "horribly pitiful plants"? Those potted plants look very nice!
We're calling Santa!
Is that the chicken coop I see outside the window?
I are sooooo smart!

|Jeff the plants inside look great. Can you whisper the name of the ones getting coal ?
Absolutely love the snow scene
Only one or two more leaf mulching with the mower. Giving the weeds a break till spring. Sooby
