Before and After

Here are some pictures from the Demo Garden on Saturday afternoon, and then a comparable picture from this afternoon.

Snowy BlackberryOne of the blackberry plants coated in ice.

Wilted BlackberryThis closeup of the blackberry foliage from this afternoon shows the damage. The plant will lose these leaves and then put on new ones.

Snow DaffodilsThe daffodils are weighed down by the snow and ice.

Blooming DaffodilsObviously the snow didn’t set the daffodils back much! They look just as good as they did before the storm.

Salad GardenThe Salad Garden is nicely insulated under the snow.

Salad Garden ThawedIf you look closely you can see some tiny specks of green. The seedlings are still there and appear to be none the worse for the snowy weekend. In fact, everything is now nicely watered!
