A couple nights ago the temperature was expected to drop to 30 degrees after being 75 degrees the day before. We had most of the annuals planted in the yard and so was Walter's garden planted and beautiful. In an effort to save our plants, we got out some of our incandescent Christmas lights and lined the plants with the lights. We built temporary greenhouses over the plants and left the lights on all night to create heat. Luckily, the temp did not drop to 30 degrees and we were able to save all plants. Louisiana weather at its best!
Strings of lights line rows of zinnias.
The temporary greenhouses with lights on. Kind of spooky!
