It is December 18, and we have now had 2 nights of frost. The bird bath had a few ice floes last night. Some meteorologist, pontificating in the paper, says that is the last frost we shall have this winter, but I doubt it. Simone Van Stolk kept records for years, and we averaged 6 frosts per winter.
There is no sign of frost damage to bougainvillea, bananas, Brugmansia, or anything else I think of as tender, but I suppose the damage may show up later.
