Yes, I was a bit shocked but learned a lesson, too. Either I would use the heater (I bought something called "Frostwächter (literally, frost guard)" last week) or bring those not-that-hardy ones indoors.That’s too bad you had such damage Phaedra! In the past i’ve had some things sun scald during hardening and even though i wanted to and worked hard at saving them; they went away and were replaced. It hurts when we put so much effort into them and suffer loss.
No...I guess my Show N Tell was one of the victims that murdered by the voles before they have the chance to blossom. 😭The dinner plate size dahlias can sometimes go an entire season with only one late bloom, for us here.
Do you not have the Show & Tell this year, Phaedra?

Last season's picture but it's raining and I'm avoiding getting wet going out with the camera to the front yard .
