Same here. I did manage to save my Clematis vine and my Peony bush by wrapping them in bedsheets, but everything else is gone. Lillies, Columbine, Iris, and the apple blossoms. It's sad.

Now if it would just get warm again. I swear, I'm colder now than I was all winter.


I don't know about you, but our last frost date is May 5th. I never try to plant anything before then no matter how warm it may be. Have you ever looked up your frost date? Might help prevent the loss of plants in the future.

FYI, we are in the Blue Ridge in SW Virginia at 3000 ft.
