Pretty Plant Interlude: Lupin

Yup, they all survived. It only went down to 5C...

Tonight it's supposed to be a steamy 6 / 7C

Good diggin' weather.

Isn't this weather frustrating? I had some chilled annuals on the weekend--I think it was Saturday night, or maybe Sunday--mostly because it got quite low but was also windy, and I didn't move things into the greenhouse or cover them. I'm a bit hardhearted with annuals in containers in spring. If they wimp out, they get replaced by something sturdier.
What was funny here is that it was chilly on Monday--cool enough to put a fire in the woodstove--then yesterday shot up to around 80 degrees and 99 percent muggy. Today, it was very hot til the fog rolled in. As you say, cool is good digging weather....but I won't be planting beans or sunflowers for a couple of weeks yet, I guess.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. Glad to hear you survived the frost warning. Toronto pulled through just fine. Awesome Lupins. I don't have any....yet. They are real showstoppers.
Cheers.

No frost for us, but it sure did get chilly. A couple of years ago I planted yellow lupins, and still have the tag in the ground to prove it. But now they are purple!!! Yours are looking great.
