April 2007-Death and Ressurectiom
I am posting pics of the Artic blast's damage and the joys of a return to life.
The Japanese Viburnum in the old garden spot....it was in full bloom when hit:
The larger one by the woodshed is almost as bad.
Most of the daylilies still look like this:
My largest prettiest variegated Hosta still looks like this:
The red Azalea:
Most of the sedum ended up like these, there is one on each side of the locust tree root:
I had cut back the large blue Nikko Hydrangea to live growth...this is all that remains, but lo and behold ! there is a new shoot!
Now for the good news... although the Gingko is baren looking, the flowerbed is filling in nicely:
These Hosta have resprouted:
The Henry Clematis is shooting forth new growth:
Astilbes are resprouting after being killed to the ground:
One of my biggest joys is the growth on the large blue Hosta :
Although most of the sedum spectibilis were turned to mush, a few were almost unscathed,( see the upper one), and this lower one is returning !
I am sure the rest of the sedum will resprout also. along with most other plants.
