I moved my outdoor potted plants into the garage Saturday and Sunday nights. The long-range forecast was good (and warmer) and I figured they could get at least another couple of weeks of life if I got them through those cold nights. Thank heavens it will be warmer tonight--eight trips around the house carrying a plant gets a little tedious twice a day.

i thought basements by definition were cool, damp places?

Depends on where the basement is located. Basements in Tampa or New Orleans would be warm and wet. Basements in northwestern New Mexico would be cool and dry. ;)

Basements in New Orleans are called indoor swimming pools. :'(

It isn't often that you see Iris in PA in mid-November but here they are!

There is another bloom on the plant so I'm still expecting to see another flower.

I've delayed giving my Iris their winter hair cut and I'm glad i did. I had 2 plants that rebloomed.

That's amazing--beautiful blooms. Must be the warmer weather we had for a while. I was bringing my outdoor potted plants into the garage for a few nights last week, but a couple of days ago I decided I'd have to let them go with the next cold snap--it's almost Thanksgiving, after all.

Well, we're having record breaking heat in November here in Florida, so... it's still summertime. YAY! [/ sarcasm]

and parts of Colorado with up to a foot of snow and Interstate 70 closed.  As far as I am concerned, they can keep hoarding it. Last winter, especially February and March were totally miserable. I don't want a repeat.

Pop over for the weekend as we have had rain for ten days or so and the forecast is for gales and more torrential rain. :Laughing:

Amen. I'm not sure I could take another winter like the last two, if for no other reason than I'll go broke buying bird food.

Now if you want to see flowers, take a look at the Atacama desert after El Nino rains:

Gorgeous. My nephew and his wife spent 5 years in Chile helping set up a company. I'll have to check a map and see how close or far they were from here.
