It’s noon on Friday and the temp is still below freezing according to Weather Underground, but things are slowly starting to thaw. All kittens, except for Mommy, have been accounted for, but I’m not worried about her — she’s a smart cat.
I caught Frannie and Baby having a little drink:
Baby is either all fluffed up or has put on some weight. With the weather, I’ve been feeding them more.
Icy plant pics after the jump
The lemon tree looks bad, but it has survived past hard freezes and I expect it will again.
The new mandarin was icy, but it should be ok — lots of mulch, well watered, and the graft protected.
Perhaps the cabbage will make it.
The radicchio looks ok, too. I’ve had them covered.
The poor battered orchid tree is covered in ice.
The butterfly bush made it through the freeze last year but just barely. It had only grown back to a fraction of its earlier size.
The pom had already lost all of its leaves. Hopefully the mulch and covering the graft kept it safe. (That’s Tammy on the porch. I tried to take pics of the pups, but they wouldn’t cooperate.)
Perhaps I’ll add more later.
