Sadly, the frost took a huge toll on the cherry and pears. But I do have a happier survival story for today.
In April 2011, I blogged that the Rabbits Were Happy. They had stripped nearly all the bark from my flowering quince bush, which had FINALLY had lovely blooms the year before. Several people said you thought the bush would survive. I wasn't so sure.
But, guess what? It has enough greenery to look like a small bush again. You can see a couple of the dead branches from the rabbit trauma.
It has two blossoms this year. That's sure a far cry from the potential. I see flaming bushes six feet tall in other people's lawns! But it is two blossoms I never expected to see.
