Garden journal entry


March 29, 2012. Disaster strikes! The warm early-spring weather colluded with an overnight freeze into the mid-20s to do in the flowers and buds on our hybrid magnolias - the Betty shown in this picture as well as Elizabeth. The latter was already severely damaged by our freak Halloween snowstorm last year, which severed its main header as well as several main branches, so that it only seems fitting that the flower display is aborted this spring. Betty will rebloom sporadically throughout the year; I hope that Elizabeth will once again grow into a graceful small tree as years of new growth erase the damage done last fall. For now, she has all the grace of a gangly teenager covered in zits!
