New leaves appearing
On the home front, I am happy to report that some of our trees are beginning to send out new leaves, although their dead leaves from the late freeze are still clinging to the branches. The old leaves will eventually drop, and hopefully, we won't see much lasting damage from the shocking temperature extremes the trees have endured.
I don't think the leaves on the trees above even went through the freeze! I think they saved their leaves by waiting just a little later to put them out. When all the trees are this green, we will rejoice! It's just not right to have dead brown leaves hanging on the trees in spring.
