This week is the beginning of a little experiment. My sweet bloggy-friend, Katia, read my previous post about a "volunteer" impatiens that jumped out of her flowerpot and planted herself amongst some evergreens under a small tree in my front yard. I hadn't really seen her until it got warm the other week and she put on a lovely show of magenta pink blossoms.
Katia planted an idea in my mind (I think she's blogging it today, so I don't want to step into her limelight), and tonight (it's actually 8pm on Thursday as I write this), I acted upon it. You see, it is 41 degrees F outside right now, and we're heading down to 28 degrees or so tonight (about -2C). This little impatiens would not survive. She was already looking quite stressed out there! And so, the rescue began:
1) Find an extra flower pot in the garage...oh, yay! I have extra potting soil leftover!
2) Dig up my sweet, cold volunteer!
I'll keep y'all updated on how she's doing...now, I'm off to cuddle up on the couch in front of the warm, crackling fireplace. To all my FarmGirl @ Heart friends, have a great Friday!
