Now, as spring's official beginning is right around the corner, my thoughts are turning to my poor plants. I took a little stroll today to see the condition of things as they emerge from the melting snow.
Our lean-to, hoping to be a shed when it grew up, gave out under the weight of it all
Already damaged by the initial snowfall, my poor abelia took the brunt of the rooftop snow removal
This was once a massive forsythia--now flattened
This snapped off metal stake used to support a wall of honeysuckle
I have no idea how much of this azalea hedge will be left when this snow finally melts
One destroyed ivy arbor
This cedar tree was removed from the land my church was built on--transplanted here on the day of the groundbreaking
There is bamboo debris everywhere
My poor flattened euonymous
My wiegela--the hummingbirds' favorite--half broken off by snow from the roof
So, apologies to all you snow lovers, but I don't want to see any more of the stuff for a very long time.
