Add up the losses of spring....
Aside from the bunny damage mentioned earlier (I did finally kill one, felt GREAT!), here is the tally of losses to the frigid first week of April:
Merril Magnolia: No blooms at all, for the first time in 8 years it lost its flowers-- is leafing out well tho.
Roses: Mostly died to the ground, but there is new growth.
Forsythia: Fully flowered, but half of the petals were black, first time ever not full blooms.
Korean Maple: 8 ft tall, half of it is dead, some leafing out coming from the trunk.
No damage at all: Japanese maple, redbud, quince, Leonard Messel magnolia
