Ever forgotten to bring a plant inside before a frost? Pic

Here you go. It's not even recognizable...lol Dir! One less to worry about I guess.

Have you ever done this?

Mike, now that is some show plant! It should be entered in a show..lol, j/k...

Aren't you curious what it is/was? Maybe it will come back?

There's been several frosts and many plants are still outside..

Some of my Jades have brown leaves, which is due to a few icy nights..

I'm hauling plants in a little at a time...it's hard working solo, you know? Gotta clean each area before setting plants in their winter spot.
The darn windows weigh more than I do..lol.

Obviously, winter is nearing, blah! Can't wait until spring when the earth comes to life again..Toni

Yes I recognize a frozen Coleus when I see one.

Ouch! I lost most of a large aglaonema some years ago when I neglected to bring it in before a frost. However, I did save some of it and it's growing into a nice sized plant.

Hello Elkay..Where have you been these days?

Purple, I think your right..lol
I had a beautiful color one that I wanted to save and I don't see it anymore. Darn.lol

Toni, I think you will have them all inside before the snow storm scheduled for your area this Tuesday.,.....Ha
I am so happy you have two very helpful men with you to bring them all in for you..lol

That's sad. Not sure how cold it has gotten there, but if it has only dipped down into the cold a bit, perhaps there is a chance that even though the top growth was killed the roots are still alive. Maybe not a good chance, but I'd probably try bringing it inside to see if it resprouts if it was something I really liked. :)

Yep, I left one out when it wasn't with the other plants.
