Sudden Frost Takes A Toll

Saucer magnolias in my neighborhood... just reaching their pink and purple glory... look very brown today after this morning's frost. In my yard, I noticed sulking princess flower shrubs and nasturtiums. My 'Tropicanna' cannas look extra scrappy today too. I think everything but the magnolia blossoms will recover nicely. My young magnolia is budding out a little late, so it may have been spared.

Hope y'all didn't run out to the nursery during that balmy weather last week and buy all kinds of tender tropicals and subtropicals...
