Ok, I went out this afternoon (Yes, Elizabeth, I skipped out on work this afternoon) and all mine were just fine. Not a scorch at all. I was more worried about my lilies. My Triumphator is up about six inches or so... I was just waiting to find it mush, but it's fine too. All the peony are happy. Everything is good.
However, I do think I lost a bunch of hosta I had stored in the machine shed for the winter. They aren't doing much of anything... Oh well.. They can be replaced.
Kathy, isn't it a bummer to leave when everything is beautiful and warm and then to have to come home and have it be rotten and cold.. ARGH!!! I hate that! However, the good thing is that we're not in for six more months of snow and cold.. I hope.
