See, there was a hard freeze last night--the first of the year. The hydrangeas didn't exactly survive.
Oh, poor hydrangeas.
And this Ginko Tree: a horticulturist friend warned us the leaves on this tree would turn yellow one day and be gone the next.
I wonder what it will look like tomorrow.
No metaphors tonight. Just some sound advice: if it's below freezing outside, make your husband walk the children to school!
