Every year I worry about my Japanese Maple leaves making too early an appearance. The rain Saturday froze on the buds and, I hope, helped protect them. Still frozen early this morning. The forsythia I don't worry about... they're hardier.. and the little redbuds? Well... they just never seem to learn.


  1. Great pics! Wow!
    Hopefully our mock orange and the lilacs weren't too harmed. Its already 40 degrees so we shold be good to go - time will tell however.
    Most all of this will be gone by Wednesday too, another bonus.

  2. Wow, is this from the most recent snow storm out West? Nice.

  3. Yes... the storm hit here yesterday.... first freezing rain, then sleet, then snow.... probably the best order possible to preserve the buds. These shots were taken early this morning.
