This was the scene last night about 7 pm when my friends were planning on coming to sew. Needless to say, they stayed home. What a bad thunderstorm!
It was about 89 degrees at that point but by morning it was in the mid 50’s and by tomorrow morning it’s going to be in the 30’s! Those plants had to get inside so for the first time in many years, the plants moved inside without being treated outside for bugs. I’ve got my work cut out for me. All I can say is that 150+ plants are inside somewhere but not their winter resting place just yet. These pictures will give you an idea of what lies ahead of me.

I’ve had this fern for many years and I considered leaving it outside to freeze but then I decided I couldn’t do it. It lives in the piano room during the winter. It is just so darned big!
The girls might come tonight to sew. This chilly weather feels like a pot of homemade soup. I will spend the weekend cleaning up plants and putting the house back in order. I will also print the measurements for the gray and orange table mat.
