Nipped in the bud

The azaleas and hydrangeas were nipped in the bud the other night.   I am sure they will not be as pretty this year as last year.  
Got down below freezing and nipped in the bud is what it did.
Was so anxious to seeing some flowers on this one,  been a chore trying to keep it alive for 7 years, moving and replanting etc.
Darn and these bloomed close to a red color

This is a large pink azalea  that seems to be o.k. so far

peonies next to garage seem o.k.

ajuga bugle is not one of my favorites by a long shot.   Too snakey for me.

an arrangement of a few from yard and white lilac

I showed a picture of this birds nest a week or so ago and now there are little birds.

till next time


  1. Aww, baby birds! How sweet! We had a hard frost too. Some people had already started planting gardens but the rule of thumb here is to wait until April 15.

  2. Oh, Betsy, your hydrangea might be OK they are pretty hardy. That is such a beautifully arranged bouquet. It looks perfect and those little birds will be a joy to follow along..Happy Wednesday..Judy
