Same old, same old

It seems every year we get a "norther" after things have leafed out and the new foliage gets zapped. My mulberry trees are loaded with mulberries so, in an attempt to try to save them, I turned on the sprinkler early this morning. Don't know if it'll help. Especially if it gets colder tonight, which I think is forecast.

I can only do what I can do, one challenge at a time.

UPDATE: By mid-afternoon it had warmed up somewhat. I was delighted to see so many blooms. This Texas Madrone (Arbutus xalapensis) blossom was the most surprising of all.


  1. Freeze here again also... I did cover some new and very smalll Lindhimer Morningloryand Passion vines in the new pollinator garden.
    Everything else is on its own...poor small Mexican Plum leaves.

  2. I watched the thermometer all night and it got down to 31° by 8 AM so I sprinkled the mulberries. I think they'll be OK, by the hair of their chinnie-chin-chin. Hope your stuff is OK too.

  3. It might be said we worry tooo much!
    I do see some sad/wilted leaves.Some things have not been in very long sooo we shall see.
