We’ve had one hard freeze after another this spring, so I had little doubt that all my budding trees and plants had bit the dust. But just look at this little tree. Usually if we get so much as a light frost while these things are budding, they won’t bloom. So I’m amazed, as well as thrilled, to see that most everything seems to have come through the cold weather fine. Now if it just doesn’t freeze or frost anymore…. 🙂

  1. So glad your plum tree is alive and well. I have one in my front yard and it is one of my favorites. It’s not anywahere near close to flowering yet this year.


  2. How beautiful is this??? It’s so unusual, any other things happening in your yard of imagination? Any more of those magical tree carvings?!


  3. Thanks, Jean. Glad you stopped by. I’m sure your plum has flowered by now and is lovely.

    Deb, good to see you. Love the new hair style. No more wood wizards, but hubby is wanting more…LOL.
