Tender plants take cover!

According to the Weather Underground forecast for Ithaca, NY, the temperature will be dipping down close to freezing tonight. Mom has moved some of the tender porch plants into her back room where they will hunker down for the next five or six (!) months. These Begonias, Fuchsias, and Pelargoniums looked big on the porch but now that they’re inside they are really huge. Some will sulk and suffer through the dark days of winter. ┬áSome will bloom straight through. Many leaves will curl and fall. But as the light and warmth return, these plants will live to see another summer.
