Lovely flowers on the jades, for sure. I wonder if they need the dry, cold dormant period to bloom? I grew them both in Vancouver, and in Salt Lake City, and none ever bloomed. They were always kept in the house, though.
My yard is blossoming with frost cloth tents in which my blooming and fruiting tomatoes are very happy. We got the new hoop structure covered nicely with new Garden Quilt cloth and when I went out last night before bed (40ish - BBrrr!) it was about 10deg. warmer in the tent than outside. Just what I would expect, with the dry cold, and some wind going on. We will 'tweak' the design over the next few days, and possibly add some of the old Christmas lights for the two really cold nights - 30's expected Wednesday and Thursday.
I have some brave little wild salvia still blooming, usually pale bubble-gum pink, but today they are a nice intense coral. My tiny miniature roses have buds on them, too:
Snap peas and pansies are very happy with the cold weather, frankly. No need to cover those unless it really freezes.
I'm not quite sure what to do about this - a Monarch cat obviously found my frost cloth tent a good place to make his chrysalis, but it seems to be not quite complete - there is a little open "port" on the side that worries me. Think I'll put him inside the hoop house for now, and see if he makes it.
