Every year I put together my own flower baskets. It's super easy, inexpensive and a fun way to spend an afternoon in the sun. Until a Winter Weather Advisory is issued.

So, needless to say I'll be trekking all the newly planted baskets and pots into the garage for the night. Even though snow is being called at higher elevations, low temps (in the mid to upper 30s) are not kind to delicate flowers and young veggies.

I held back this year - normally I plant far more things than I can handle responsibly. Even though most are simply in containers, spending more time at home these days gives me confidence I'll give them all the attention they need.

The baskets themselves can take a pretty good beating with harsh weather...not only the cold temps but we get brutal wind at my house. Best to bring them in the garage.

Anyway, I thought I'd share a couple of the results of my Saturday. There were lots more flowers and veggies planted but they're already in the garage :-)
