Mother’s Day flowers threatened by frost

I bought my mother a pot of geraniums for Mother’s Day. They are a lovely, vibrant pinkish red colour.

But any potted plants purchased this past weekend or earlier are at risk for frost.

I was always told it is not safe to plant flowers in your gardens until the May long weekend.

It holds true this year as anyone who got a head start on the garden will now have to deal with covering up those fragile flowers.

Luckily, I haven’t started planting annuals yet. Hopefully over the long weekend I will.

I really enjoy gardening. I find it one of the most relaxing things to do, even while yanking like heck on weeds.

What did you get your mother for her special day?

Any plans to get busy in the garden soon?
