    FWIW, I declared dormancy over....

    ...and winter is about to return again! I just hauled my entire collection of temperate plants from the garage. I think they did pretty well, considering:

    Me too. I took everything out last week, and now they are in the garage. Looks like it will be their home for a little bit.

    I also brought my plants out last weekend!
    because the night-time lows were forecast to be above freezing for the foreseeable future..(the next 10-days forecast on weather.com)
    I know 10-days out can be iffy, and subject to change, but that's the criteria I use every spring to decide when to bring my plants
    out of dormancy..Sunday was the day! and only 3 days later, we might have a few nights below freezing!

    although probably not in Rochester..tonight looks like a low of 33, with maybe some mild freezing rain..
    I haven't bothered to move my plants, they are still on the deck..
    even 30 wouldn't bother them at all..
    my cut-off for moving the plants in the garage, in early spring or late fall, is 27 degrees in the forecast..
    no one is saying that, so im leaving my plants out..

    I'm not moving plants out of the cooler for awhile, yet. My plan is to keep them in there and on the nights when the low is projected to be below freezing, I'm shutting the lid.

    My weather is your weather, Scot! and I still have the Leahs you gave me a few years ago!

    sounds good Jim!

    We are having very mild freezing rain today..
    some ice is sticking to some tree branches..but no ice on the roads,
    and no ice forming on my plants..so its all fine..

    I think some tree branches are at 32 degrees..
    and my plants, being on the warmer deck, and close to the house, are at 33 degrees!
