Though I don't mind not sailing into the 90's like we do some years, these last few days of 20's is really wreaking havoc. Farmers are adding up the losses to their crops, some at over 50%. After two days of covering the tulips, we cut them and brought them in. The tulip tree I have written about before seems to have really borne the brunt of this.
It had leafed out starting about the same time the flowers bloomed, and it's leaves were about half grown when the first freeze came. After the second night they wilted; after the 3rd night they've turned brownish and I'm finding some on the ground. If it wasn't pouring I'd slip out and take a photo...I don't know whether it will recover or not.
I know my fate is not tied to it, but after 51 years I'd hate to lose it! Something about my grandfather bringing it and he and my Dad planting it the spring after my arrival makes it very sentimental to me.
Easter went well; when I upload memory cards I'll see what I can put together of the egg hunt from Sunday.
Hope you all had lovely weekends and that the work week is kind!
