So I ran out in the pouring, freezing rain last night and in my socks to boot.. no, no boots, just socks. I guess I could've taken the time to put on boots, but all I could think about was my baby yellow Lantana, mom's Potato Bush, purple and red Salvia, ornamental Sage, Lipstick plant, Ice plants and Raspberries. With a pile of newspaper and bags, I ran around the yard covering them all up. I was soaked thru and thru, my hair plastered to my head and FREEZING but you know what? I was relieved. Now I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. There are some things you just can't replace like mom's Potato Bush...

"I grow them in two spots under my eaves here in the Pacific NW. They moved themselves by reseeding out from under the roof! The happier of the two likes dry, hot but afternoon shade. I cut them back after flowering & they grew new leaves again…"
