Thyme in the meditation circle was dressed in white in the chill of early morning. Soon petals, leaves and berries glistened as sunlight reached the garden.
By 1:00 p.m. the afternoon was sunny and mild at 62°F. (17°C.), perfect weather for planting some new gardenias I bought at the State Farmers Market in Raleigh last week. I bought three old-fashioned Gardenia jasminoides (cape jasmine), but now am second-guessing whether they will be cold hardy.
