Today’s PSA: bring your plants inside

Remember my resilient gerbera daisies?

We had a few really cold nights in the middle of November, and I had every intention of bringing my plants in.

But then David got sick, then I got sick, plus it was annoyingly cold outside, so we just hunkered down and ate chicken noodle soup for three weeks.

After a month of no water and several nights below freezing, this is how my daisies looked.


I brought them inside and gave them a good soaking.


But let’s face the facts, there’s no hope for these guys, right?


Then, like three days of being inside and getting water, this popped up.


And this.


I don’t deserve the grace these flowers are extending me.

I just don’t.
