I has been a while since my last post. I have been really busy at work and fighting a sore throat that landed me in the emergency room last Saturday. I am better now, but the yard has faced the wrath of mother nature. I guess she wanted to let us know that she still had the upper hand. We had a couple of weeks of really nice weather then a week of below freezing temperatures in the morning and only highs in the 30's and low 40's. After several days it took a toll on the garden. Here are some pictures of the causalities. Not sure what will happen with some of the lillies and the bleeding heart. I am sure the roses and the Japanese maple will leaf out again. It is just one of the trials of being a gardener.
