I wouldn't worry overly much, Marianne... I've done similar things in
zone 4/5 in Iowa, and everything has come out fine.  If you're worried
about heat transfer, you might want to stuff a sheet of styrofoam
under the leaf bags (if you can keep the styrofoam from sailing off
some winter night), or, barring that, some sections of newspaper.
