We woke up to a dusting of snow this morning in North Texas. Not as much on this side of DFW as the north side but still a surprise. At 10pm the local weatherman still had doubts, regardless of what the National Weather Service was telling him.
My online search doesn’t show any freezing weather in/around Houston, and certainly no snow for you, it is getting colder there as well! We’re always ready ahead of time, but I admit we got caught with this cold front and we were scurrying around at 8:15pm last evening making sure the faucets were covered, hoses drained. In our “defense” even at 5pm yesterday the forecast was for a low of 43. You may want to check out where your faucet covers are hiding and locate any of the coverings you use for the more tender plants around the house. Always make your pets first priority!
Here is a great link for protecting plants from frost, and what to do if you miss the boat and have plants which are caught out in the open:

in the Gulf Coast area, so the experts tell us.
Here’s a helpful site: Texas Tree Selector which asks you to either an express search or a custom search, then you select your county. I chose “Express” thne “Harris county” then “medium” and got four nice choices in medium sized trees, each with a link to more information. The site is by Texas A&M Forest Service.
On a commercial site, Houston Garden Centers and many pages of shrubs to plant now, starting on this page. And the navigation to the left holds many more pages of planting advice including trees, palms and shrubs.
Who needs shopping next Friday after Thanksgiving when you could be doing yard work!
