Saving flowers

beautiful new guinea impatiens plant with pink flowersThis morning I looked outside our balcony door and my flowers were drooping. We had a killing frost.

Good thing I finally got around to transplanting one of my new guinea impatiens plants yesterday,  just in the nick of time! I really want to experiment and see whether the plant will winter over inside my home.

Hopefully this lovely little plant will survive and thrive, perhaps long enough to see another summer on the balcony.
