    We have had a "for us" very hard winter. Folks around here have lots of damage to their trees and shrubs from a rare hard winter freeze. We are no different but today weather cooperating we went out and began the long road to recovery. Here is a story and walk around video showing the damage.

    Cajun. so good to see you back posting! I'm sorry you had a hard winter, but you'll recover your garden and yard's beauty.
    We had a tough winter also, and our vegetable gardens are behind the usual planting time, but Mother Nature is a hard task mistress.
    We'll all do what we can when we can, and make the best of it!

    I can't do anything in the garden yet as we still have around 18" of snow on the ground. Maybe soon.....:fingerscrossed:

    We really had a strange year while we had record cold Feb. was the warmest on record. so it was extremes. I am mowing today and the weather man predicting more cold and a possible freeze next week as ya can see in the video some of the citrus is in full bloom a freeze could hurt.
