My Brain is Frozen

Well, it must be because I was outside today wrapping up my broccoli starts as if they were going to make it. I mean I know I am too busy when I am wrapping for the freeze 5 days after it struck. They may have made it if I got to them by Wednesday. But now?!

It looks spooky, like some kind of phantom cradle. Its an apparition. So's my broccoli.

Lone tea barely freezing, hanging on, still scented

Salvia elegans succumbs to nasty black death, but that lone, wallside branch not giving in.

The asters hanging on, their oily leaves more resistant to the cold.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
