Clematis is covered up at night to protect it from frost.

It's cold again

After all this warm weather, it dropped down below freezing last night. This morning there was ice on the windshield of my car and co-workers who live in the southern part of Fort Wayne reported snow.

I am so glad I covered my clematis that has woken up from its winter slumber and is sending out green shoots. Hopefully. my cherry buds survived the chill.
