Just to hedge (and rage) against Mother Nature, we are posting these shots of Husband RJ's back yard blossoms.
Once again we are expecting a visit from Jack (A$$) Frost tonight.
With any luck the ornamental trees will survive intact, but it has been our sad experience over three decades that the wisteria is not so hardy.
When the frost nips them, we cannot expect any more blooms for a while, maybe even years. The cascades are lovely, and we are going crazy shooting picture after picture to remind ourselves that they are more than just a weed overtaking our property.
To be perfectly fair, we have to admit that the greenery beats the bombed out backyard we inherited from our predecessors. Say a prayer for our blossoms!
