Is it fall, or winter?

We had our first snow a couple of days ago --just flurries, but still it seemed terribly early. It's been quite cold for over a week now --cold, as in heavy frost. The plants in the planters are goners.

Before it got too cold, I did manage to move a couple of plants I'd been thinking of moving during the summer. I also planted two of my six heather plants, and some bulbs. However, I still have quite a few bulbs to plant, and four more heathers. Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the low 50's, so I'm hoping I can get the rest planted. Although normally I teach a lab Tuesday afternoon, I've taken the day off in order to be here when our new furnace is installed; I'm hoping I can be outside part of that time and get these things in the ground. It's looking like it might be my last chance!
